The International Celtic Massed Pipes and Drums

Founder and Head of the Band — Pipe Major David Johnston.

The Celtic Pipes and Drums is an international creative union of musicians from different countries united by the common Celtic culture. The band was founded in 2016 for specially performing in the “Spasskaya Tower” Festival.

David Johnston was for many years the British Army Pipe Major and instructed bagpipers in the Royal Regiment of the Irish and Scottish Guards. As well as the head of the band himself, all its members are honored musicians who have gained recognition in their countries and have performed, among others, in front of the heads of their states.

In May 2017, the Celtic Massed Pipes and Drums participated in the “Amur Waves” VI International Military Music Festival in Khabarovsk.

At the X anniversary “Spasskaya Tower” Festival the band numbering 120 bagpipers and drummers performed in the main square of the country together with the International Scottish Highland Dance Team.

In 2018 the Celtic Pipes and Drums will grab the audience’s attention by the show of drum-majors.
