Welcome to the La Crosse Highlanders

The La Crosse & District Pipes and Drums is a Scottish pipe and drum band. Our humble beginnings were in La Crosse, Wisconsin, in the early 1970's.

Also known as the La Crosse Highlanders, the band currently has approximately 28 members, and new members are always welcome. Our band tartan is the Campbell of Cawdor.

We march in local parades and can be hired for various occasions when the event calls for unique and exciting entertainment.

Every January since 1978, it has become the La Crosse Highlander's custom to plan, sponsor, and perform in a local event called the "Robert Burns Supper". The dinner and ceremony commemorates the famous Scottish poet, Robert
Burns; and celebrates Scottish heritage and tradition.
