We did it
On 22nd September 2018 we successfully raised £10,525 with 415 supporters in 14 days

New stretch target

For every additional £500 we can add

2 pipers and 1 drummer to the band.


A huge thank you to everyone who has helped us meet our target of £10,000. We now have the funds to form the band, however for every £500 that we can raise over the £10k, we can add an additional 2 pipers and 1 Drummer. Therefore the more we make, the bigger the band and the louder the sound will be.





Due to a substantial grant from the Scottish Independence Foundation (SIF) we have reduced our Crowdfunding target to £10,000. A huge thank you to SIF and to everyone who has donated so far.


THE PROJECT

The Grassroots Yes movement are badly in need of a Pipe Band! , not our words, that of thousands who attend marches and event for Independence.

A small group of dedicated Independence supporters got together recently to discuss this very issue and at the end of a week of discussions and Facebook chat. Over 80 musicians have come forward from every corner of Scotland, and together we threw some ideas around, chatted loads and discussed the finer details of a Pipe Band. The result of all that, and the fantastic musicians who have shown their support, was the formation of Saor Alba Pipes & Drums.

The band will strive to play at any Independence event we are asked to attend, and will make appearances at all of the large marches, with the march organisers consent of course.

So after a week we have 30 musicians, we now have 80+, and we would like them all to look the part as well as sound it. We have something in mind for a basic but fantastic looking uniform, but would like to keep it as a surprise for our first outing, we also need to purchase equipment, like drums, harnesses, drum skins, chanters reeds, plus fund transport costs to marches and events. 

We hope to expand the band further and hopefully when other musicians hear about this very exciting project for the Yes Movement, they will come and join us on the march for independence.

We ask your help to make this dream a reality, help us get a Yes movement band "on the road". Every penny counts and every donation, like and share is very much appreciated.

The Independence supporters really want this band!

Some Independence supporters put it together! We kindky ask the Independence movement throughout Scotland to support our project and help us get the first ever, Scottish wide independence supporting pipe band, Saor Alba Pipes & Drums marching on the road to FREEDOM
