Welcome to the official site of the Washington Scottish Pipe Band.
The Washington Scottish Pipe Band [aka: WASCOTS] is a Grade III 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.
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.
No matter what your age, ethnicity, religion, politics, gender, sexual orientation, physical abilities or musical taste, we provide prospective and existing members an exciting journey into the mysterious world of pipe band life. A celebratory and challenging experience which provides memories, values and skills for a life time.
