Welcome to the official site of the Washington Scottish Pipe Band.
The Washington Scottish Pipe Band [aka: WASCOTS] is a pipe band based out of Seattle, Washington.
Under leadership of Pipe Major Jim Guthrie, we are a team dedicated to excellence in both performance and competition. Through the promotion and celebration of Gaelic & Celtic heritage, we are also active in music education and offer instruction to pipers and drummers of all ages and skill level.
We welcome new players of all skill levels from raw beginner to seasoned contest player. We have cultivated a spirit of fun and friendship within the band that’s hard to beat and we’d love for you to check us out. Our instructors are dedicated, seasoned players willing to share their passion with anyone willing to come give it a try.
While it maybe obvious our group focuses solely on pipe band music, what’s not obvious perhaps is the fact that we make up a diverse array of tastes and experiences. From punk rock to classical, country to rap, folk to trance, reggae to heavy metal, and emo to soul -our members come from all backgrounds of musical appreciation. The one thing we have in common is our love of Scottish pipe band music.
