The Kiltie Band of York PA
The position of pipe major is one of the most important positions in the Kiltie Band. The pipe major is responsible for choosing the tunes to be learned. In addition, he/she conducts band practices and determines the tunes to be played in parades and performances. The pipe major is chosen by the members of the band as a recognition of that individual’s playing and leadership abilities. Listed below are the pipe majors who have served the band since its founding. Note: some of the dates are approximate and we do not have photos of some of the pipe majors.
Anyone having a photo or a more accurate date should contact band historian Rob Bissey
