The Antigonish Highland Games Reunion Pipe Band is back for 2019. And all solo pipers and drummers are invited to be part of the band. Registration is below.
The band is a compilation of solo pipers and drummers who meet Friday eve, July 12 before the Games for a tune-up session, and then form up again on Saturday morning for the Grand Street Parade. All pipers and drummers (from anywhere) not currently affiliated with a pipe band are welcome to join. The band will be playing ACPBA Massed Pipe Band tunes. Kilts are not necessary.
The band originally formed for the AHG 150th celebration, and has reformed once since 2013. We depart Oland Centre at St.F.X.U. and march to the end of Main St. Participation in the band also includes free entry to Columbus Field, thanks to the Antigonish Highland Society. Pipers and drummers are also invited to participate in the Saturday massed band performance at the end of the day.
The band is a rare opportunity for local and visiting pipers and drummers to assemble and participate in a great parade for a large and appreciative Antigonish crowd.
A $20 registration fee is requested to help offset organizational costs. See registration form below. Accommodations are available at St.F.X. University.
