La Tayuela de Mecer Pipe Band

La Tayuela de Mecer is a cultural association with the basical vocation of promoting and spreading the musical tradition concerning to the asturian bagpipe. Our Pipe Band has its residence in Madrid, and plays a large repertoire of tunes, inspired most of them in folk music from Asturias and Cantabria. Our clothes are based on very detailed, fine, traditional patterns and our concerts and « pasucáis » (parades) are filled with moments of absolute solemnity. The musical arrangements, both pipes and drumming, have been specially conceived to result attractive and spectacular in all our performances.

The band director, Juan Oliver, has obtained in his short career as pipe solo player many important successes, such as finalist at « Concurso Campoamor ́99 », 4th at « Memorial Remis Ovalle 2000 », finalist at « The Macallan Trophy 2000 » or winner at « Memorial Manolo Quirós », etc..

In spite of the short period of time that has passed after its foundation in 1999, La Tayuela de Mecer has contributed to keep alive the asturian musical tradition inside and outside Asturias natural limits
