The Celtic Massed Pipes and Drums

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

The Celtic Massed Pipes and Drums is an international creative union of musicians from European countries who are linked by a common history. The band was established in 2016 to perform at 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 head 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 anniversary festival, the band, which numbers 120 bagpipers and drummers, will perform together with the International Scottish Highland Dance Team.
