The Old Pretenders
The Old Pretenders are a recently formed, local bagpipe band. They enjoy playing a wide variety of tunes, from traditional to more contemporary. They play a range of instruments from bagpipes, guitar and drums and like to bring an enjoyment to Southern Community events.
The group plays both the large traditional Highland pipes as well as smaller, (quieter) chamber pipes. Playing some less traditional tunes differentiates the group from other bagpipe bands.
