Serving the Central Michigan area since 1995, the WPCAC provides lessons in Highland dance, drumming and bagpiping and is open to all comers regardless of race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, sex, parental status, handicapping condition, or membership in any labor organization.
Of course, the best opportunity to get to know the Council and Celtic culture is to come to one of our many performances. The White Pine Pipe and Drums, the Midland Pipe Band and the Highland Dancers perform throughout the year at a variety of events including weddings, funerals and other special occasions.
Practice Makes Perfect
As you can see, one doesn’t need bagpipes to learn. A practice chanter and a desire to learn is all that’s required.

Age is never an issue
Here at the Midland Pipes and Drum Band practice we see Frank Udell, our eldest player, instructing one of our youngest during a recent practice in the park.
No matter your age, we’d love to have you join us to pursue your passion for piping!

Dancing with the heart
Whether your interest is looking to ‘reel’, ‘jig’ or lift your legs to a ‘hornpipe’, we can help you to dance like no one is looking! Even though everyone is!
The fact is you’ll find a community that you will feel at home with and revel in the enjoyment of Celtic heritage and dance.

And, until we meet again...
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Now that you’ve seen a bit of what we do, let us introduce you to the Officers of the Council.
