Ceud Mile Failte!

Welcome to the legacy website of the Desert Thistle Pipe Band!

2015 was a year of transition for the Desert Thistle Pipe Band.

For 38 years, the band enjoyed bringing the sound of the pipes and drums to the Tri-Cities, Washington region and beyond.

In the past few years, members of the band have joined forces with other pipers and drummers from around the Pacific Northwest to form a band dedicated to pipe band competition. The Desert Thistle Pipe Band has now morphed into the
Columbia Regional Pipe Band that is made up of pipers and drummers from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.

This website is now a legacy site that celebrates the history of the Desert Thistle Pipe Band from 1976 to 2014.
