The Pipes and Drums of the

Highlanders of Oklahoma City

Since 1957


Founded in 1957, we are proud to serve as Oklahoma's premier bagpipe band.

Whether you need a single bagpiper for a small-scale gathering or a full band for your large event, we are ready to help make it an affair to remember!

Nearly half a century ago, there were no bagpipe bands in Oklahoma. The nearest was in Chicago and most US bands were on the coasts. Colonel Cliff MacLean Hansen founded our band in 1957 to bring this inspiring music to the people of Oklahoma. Col. Hansen, the dean of Oklahoma pipers, continued to play regularly with The Highlanders until his death in 2006.

Since its initial public appearance in 1958, the band has performed for a diverse company of groups and individuals including government officials, foreign dignitaries, local churches, universities, and schools. We strive to continue Col. Hansen's mission to provide the people of Oklahoma with quality and inspirational bagpipe music!
