Pipe Bands Australia has congratulated Sydney Thistle Pipe Band on the occasion of the band’s centenary – an amazing milestone and testament to the vision and camaraderie of those ex-servicemen who formed the band 100 years ago to share their love of Scottish music and the passion of future generations who have sustained the band on its journey.
As one of our oldest community pipe bands in Australia, we are proud that Sydney Thistle continues as torchbearer within greater Sydney and celebrates its heritage with honour and respect.
The band’s appearance in every ANZAC march since formation reflects well on our band community. Sydney Thistle has a wonderful history of participation in pipe band championships and contests together with its contribution to the social fabric of community.
The band will be presented with a special PBA certificate recognising 100 years of music.
