Mount Arrowsmith Pipe Band - 2014

Mount Arrowsmith Pipe Band – 2014

The Mount Arrowsmith Pipe Band was formed in 1975, and performs throughout the Oceanside communities of Vancouver Island.

Our band members are of all ages and backgrounds.  What we share is a love of the pipes, and a commitment to bring traditional pipe music to our community.  Our longest-standing member is Margo Walters who has been playing the pipes with the band since 1987.

Usually referred to as a “street band”, our focus is on performing in local parades, Remembrance Day and Canada Day celebrations, Burns Suppers as well as local community events.  Our pipers and drummers strive for excellence in quality of playing, dress, discipline and drill.
