The Baton Rouge Caledonia Pipe and Drums were the first Baton Rouge pipe band to march in our parade starting in 1987. The Caledonian Society is a Scottish organization dedicated to teaching the very best soul stirring Highland bagpipe music. These bagpipers have received the Judges Award for Louisiana’s only pipe band competition from Bands across the South. Beginner and experienced musicians are always welcome.
