MOST EXCITING PIPE BAND
Mac-Tire of Skye Pipes and Drums (pronounced "mack-tea-ray") is Albuquerque's top performance bagpipe band.
Established in August 2007, MTS has been growing every year while passionately serving excited students who have desires to learn Scottish bagpipes and drums. While our focus is a teaching organization, we always welcome experienced musicians to join the ranks.
MTS is the best outlet for pipers and drummers in the Albuquerque area to gain experience, surround yourself with professional performers and competitors, be seen on TV and in magazines, educating the public, and most importantly, having fun!
Mac-Tire of Skye P&D is a non-profit cultural and educational organization organized to broadening the public's interest in and appreciation for traditional Scottish piping and drumming in the Southwest.
The band is proud to feature some of the best pipers in the state of New Mexico at our performances and prides itself on quality music with the listener's interest in mind. We are the most active band with an exciting repertoire to satisfy everyone's needs.
The best part is: You don't have to be Scottish or Irish to join!
MTS has quickly become the most sought after pipe and drum band around Albuquerque, New Mexico and the surrounding areas for instruction and their reputation of outstanding and entertaining performances.
Mac-Tire of Skye is proud to be the largest Albuquerque and New Mexico pipe band with more active musicians and students than ever! MTS also has a notable success rate with students and for experienced pipers in the solo competition field.
