Welcome to the Cornish Highland Pipers

The Cornish Highland Pipers was formed in 2006 as a new and, at the time,  unique group of 'pipers in Cornwall' that wore a Cornish tartan.

They felt there was a need for players of the Great Highland Pipes to be attired in one of the Cornish tartans. They chose the smart Black and Gold which is the national tartan for Cornwall.

They have members from Penzance to St Austell and travel throughout Cornwall, performing at numerous functions.

As a group of solo pipers, they specialise in playing at weddings, funerals. charity events, official functions including celebrations  such as  Robert Burns, New Year and many others.

They perform a variety of Scottish and Cornish tunes. (Click here for details)

They can highlight that special day or dramatise a sad occasion.

Attire to choose from: Scottish or Cornish tartan including Cornish trews (available from Suecrane@rocketmail.co.uk).

They will play at any event and are happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Also, should you wish to hear them, join them or learn the pipes, please do not hesitate to contact them.

They heartily thank you for stopping by and hope to hear from you soon.

About the Cornish national tartan

Cornish tartans are the only ones in the world to feature a national flag. The original Cornish tartan was designed by the Cornish bard E. E. Morton-Nance in the 1950s, and is accepted worldwide as the Cornish national tartan. The tartan was commissioned by the Cornish Gorsedd. The black and gold signify the colours of the ancient Cornish kings. The red represents the Cornish chough; the silver thread signifies the tin that, together with the black, makes St Piran's cross. The strip of bardic blue is symbolic of the sea and the industries of the sea.
