The Pipe Bands at Brigadoon 2017

Whether it's marching in the street parade, performing individually or with the massed bands or even when they are warming up in a corner of the Bundanoon Oval surrounds, the pipe bands are an integral part of Brigadoon. Some of the bands have been coming to Brigadoon for many years bringing with them the pagentry, colour and sounds that are unique to this type of event.
