Founded in 1980, the Stewart Tartan Pipes and Drums of San Francisco is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization created to educate the general public in piping, drumming, dance, and other art forms associated with Scottish and Celtic culture. We perform both publicly and privately, and instruct those interested in piping and drumming.
We offer parade, concert, and competition bands. Our culture is one of continual technical improvement coupled with a familial environment. Established performers and those starting their dedicated musical journey will find a home with us. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings at the St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Saratoga.
The calling of the pipes and drums adds an inspirational, and memorable touch to any event. We have performed at personal milestone celebrations, corporate events, community festivals, military/first responder ceremonies, major league professional sporting events, as well as accompanying The Chieftains at the Mountain Winery.
