An engaging blend of visual humour, bagpipes, drums, percussion and sound effects (with occasional bubbles), The Absurdist Pipe Band is vibrant, crowd pleasing and entertaining.

Playing anything from TV themes to 40′s swing, from pop hits to classical motifs, festive favourites to traditional tunes, they are guaranteed to surprise and bring a smile and a laugh.

The band consists of accomplished musicians who have many years experience playing folk, traditional, samba, and street music at festivals, galas, parties, carnivals and concerts all over the country.

The Absurdist Pipe Band developed from an earlier street band which combined Iberian bagpipes and music, percussion and Eastern European carnival traditions. During visits to pre-lenten carnival in Slovenia, the lads would dress up in daft costumes and play daft music, entertaining the carnival goers in bars, restaurants, stages and on the streets. They loved it, we loved it… The Absurdist Pipe Band was born.
