The Brian Boru Irish Pipe Band of St. Paul, Minnesota is a 501c3 nonprofit band which was established in 1962 to preserve and advance Celtic piping, drumming, and dancing. 

Members of the Brian Boru Irish Pipe Band have performed with national acts including the Chieftains, Green Day, Blink-182 and Rod Stewart as well as alongside local acts like The Northerly Gales and Mactir Academy of Irish Dance.

Our presence has been requested at events from the Minnesota Twins to the Twin Cities Marathon.
