Firefighters Pipe Band
London Fire Fighters Pipe Band
The London Fire Fighters Pipe Band operates from London Ontario, with musical direction by Pipe Major Jim Scott. The band primarily focusses on the musical development of bagpipers and drummers, and often performs non competitively in parades and public events in the London region. The London Fire Fighters Pipe Band proudly assumes the name of their sponsor, the London Fire Fighters Professional Association.
During the summer months many members of this musical ensemble also perform competitively at Scottish festivals and highland gatherings throughout Ontario as the London & District Pipe Band led by Pipe Major Kevin Shand. Recent achievements by the competitive group include Ontario Champion Supreme in Grade 5 (2016, 2019), and Grade 5 North American Champions (2016). Following the 2019 season, the band advanced to Grade 4 on the recommendation of the Pipers & Pipe Band Society of Ontario.
Both bands are operated by the London (Ontario) Pipe Band Not-for-Profit Corporation. New members of any skill level are welcomed by the organization, and encouraged to develop their skills with a goal to participate in band activities either non-competitively or competitively.
The London Fire Fighters Pipe Band is very excited to partner with the Simply Reflections family, and is especially grateful for this opportunity to contribute to the diversity of culture represented by this talented group of artists and musicians!
