Formed in 1979, the Glenmoriston Pipe Band is a volunteer pipe band based in Bury St Edmunds Suffolk. The band performs at various functions both throughout East Anglia and internationally having been represented at the 2007 and 2008 Basel Tattoos in Switzerland and at the 65th anniversary commemoration of Operation Market Garden in the Netherlands in 2009. The band competes in national pipe band competitions and offers free tuition and uniforms for band members. The band’s tartan is Modern Grant after the band’s original sponsor Iain Grant of Glenmoriston Old Farm Whisky.

The band membership is healthy but the band is looking to grow its numbers, so if you are a piper or a drummer, or would like to learn then why not come along and meet us at one of our practices. There is no limit to the number of players we can have. If you are interested in joining the band or even supporting the band as a non playing member then please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Stephen Jones on 01284 728790.
The band’s next outing will be at the Christmas Market on Angel Hill in Bury St Edmunds on Sunday 25th November 2012. We are playing on the stage between 10:00 and 11:00am. Please all pray for kind weather!
Please use our Calendar to see what we are up to during the rest of 2012 and beyond. Red dates signify an “event” and if you hover over the date with your mouse then the details of the event should present themselves.
If you are looking for a special dimension to your event, why not hire the Glenmoriston Pipe Band – Suffolk’s Pipes and Drums?
