|Melbourne University Regiment Pipes and Drums consists of two bands that merged in 1997. The Pipes & Drums of Clan Donald was the band that merged with M.U.R Pipes & Drums.The Tartan worn by the band is Seaforth McKenzie. We are affiliated with the Regiment but the players are all civilians some of which are ex-Army now.
Beides attending V.H.P.B.A functions, the Band plays for the Army at Parades in and around the city, and also private functions. The Band has been travelling to Corowa, N.S.W for 15 years now to attend the Australia Day celebrations of Federation.
Our Pipe Major is Hawthorn Agnew who was a key figure in bringing the bands of Clan Donald and Melbourne University Regiment together.
We practise once a week at 7:30pm each Monday night in the Melbourne University Regiment’s building in Gratten St, Carlton.
