Tunes we play

The Wessex Highlanders’ Tunes

We make a record of the tunes that we play using conventional musical notation simply because there are many versions of almost every tune played on the pipes. If new members join from other bands, we need to be sure that we are all playing the same arrangements!

So, here are our standard tunes. We write them in Piobmaster which is a piece of software specifically designed for writing bagpipe music and so they are all available in Piobmaster format. We are slowly translating some of the tunes into PDF format and you will find those PDF versions towards the bottom of the page.
