    Does anybody know of the oldest civilian pipe band in the world??

    I have heard that the Invercargill Caledonian Pipe Band in New Zealand is
    the oldest in the southern hemisphere but is it also the oldest in the world??



    The main contender for the oldest civilian Pipe Band still in existence would appear to be the Accrington Pipe Band in Lancashire, England. The Accrington Pipe Band was founded in 1885 in the Ex-Servicemen's Club, Abbey Street, Accrington.
