City of York Pipe Band

There are a surprising number of pipe bands in Yorkshire and the City of York is no exception with its own band made up of volunteers interested in playing and in extending their skills. Formed in 1979, the band continues to play for the public on the streets of York and at parades, carnivals and private functions in towns and villages around. Under the guidance of Pipe Major, Laura Simpson, the band plans to take part in regional competitions and indeed, in a recent solo competition our drummers came away with 7 out of the 10 winning trophies. The band meets for practice every Wednesday and can be contacted through details below.
