Clann An Drumma (Scots Gaelic for "Children of the Drum") is a tribal band from Glasgow, Scotland. Clann An Drumma was formed by Joe Kilna MacKenzie, Jacquie Holland, and Tu-Bardh Stormcrow Wilson, among others. Their line-up has changed over the years.

Their music involves heavy use of percussion and Highland bagpipes. The band's motto is "Keep it Tribal". As of 2018, the band has released a total of six studio albums.

One of their better-known pieces is "Sgt. MacKenzie". It was composed by Joe MacKenzie in memory of his great grandfather, Charles Stuart MacKenzie, who died bravely in battle during World War I. "Sgt. MacKenzie" is perhaps a departure from their normal style, as its drumming and piping are subdued, and it is primarily a vocal piece. It was featured in the soundtrack to the film, We Were Soldiers (2002), and in the movie End of Watch (2012).
