Highland Bagpipes & Scottish Drums for the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex
Metroplex United Pipe Band was founded in 2013, with the idea of creating an environment that welcomes everyone interested in performing on the highland bagpipes and Scottish-style drums. Metroplex United is a Grade 5 competition band and most recently won second place at the 2016 Arkansas Scottish Festival and Games’ OPEN medley, and previously won second place at the 2015 Oklahoma ScotFest and third place at the 2015 Arkansas Scottish Festival and Games. MUPB is a member of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association.
Metroplex United is available for events from weddings to festival performances. We also offer lessons on the highland pipes and Scottish-style drums. Click the links in the menu above for more details.
Leading Metroplex United is Pipe Major Matt Willis. Matt has been playing the pipes since 1996 and was a member of the Silver Thistle Pipes & Drums (Austin, Texas) from 2000 to 2005, including a competition performance at the World Pipe Band Championship in Glasgow Scotland in 2001. Matt is currently a member of the Celtic rock band The Killdares based in Dallas, TX. He is a full-time piper and plays private performances as well as teaching folks from across the Metroplex how to play the pipes.
