Bagpipe and Drum Corps


The Callanish Pipe Band serves as the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Honor Guard Pipes and Drums. Callanish is a community pipe band based in Modesto, California. Callanish members are from various communities within the Stanislaus County area. Instrumentation consists of bagpipes, side drums (snare), tenor drums (toms), and bass drum.

Callanish has played for the Sheriff's Regional Training Center Academy Graduation ceremony, funerals, graduations, parades, major and minor league sporting events, and other special activities including the annual Blue Mass, a ceremony sponsored by the Knight's of Columbus, honoring all First Responders (Police, Fire, Paramedics, and Sheriff’s Department). The Blue Mass brought together multiple pipe bands that played to honor those in uniform. We are proud to provide this service to those who keep us safe.
