Purpose of organization: The Rhode Island Highlanders were formed after World War II in 1948 primarily by returning veterans who were dedicated to preserving and performing the traditional music of Scotland and Ireland. The Band has continued to pursue this goal in subsequent years and has become particularly active in teaching young students so that the bagpipe and drum music can be passed correctly on to new generations.

Testimonial: Donations we receive are used to offer our services to the community in the form of parades and other events. We continue to teach the musical art of Pipes and Drums, and we are continuing to provide a place for musicians to not only begin but advance their musical careers in the Pipe Band world.
