Wolf River Pipes & Drums

Playing for Scottish Heritage Night at AutoZone Park, Memphis, TN


Wolf River Pipes and Drums was founded in 1992 in order to perpetuate and promote the proud heritage of Scottish music in the Memphis and Mid South Area.

Approaching our 20th year, we have played in local parades, funerals, weddings, memorial services, grand openings, business meetings, kirkings, festivals, picnics, parties, ceileidhs, and many other events; anywhere people gather for fun, entertainment, or reflection in Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and Mississippi.

Wolf River has the honor of being the official pipe band for the Mayor of Germantown, Tennessee, and the official band for the cities of Collierville and Greenfield, Tennessee.
