Competition band based in Morris County. The CuChullain (koo-hull-in) Pipe Band has been teaching and performing Celtic music in Morris County, NJ since 1977. Founder Michael J. Smith recognized the need to form a pipe band in the area. This need was to help keep traditional music alive and help it flourish. The band provides a unique opportunity for new and experienced musicians to share their love of Celtic music and improve their skills. For more than a quarter century, a countless number of people have learned to play the bagpipes and drums through the CuChullain Pipe Band. Several have gone on to become outstanding musicians that have helped to advance the art significantly. The band, similarly, has gained recognition in competitions, parades, and civic events held across the country. After one particularly successful competition season, U.S. Congressman Dean Gallo honored the band by naming it to the New Jersey Pride Honor Roll in the Congressional Record of the 102nd Congress. This award was presented to the band at the first annual Morristown St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 16, 1991. The band has led or participated in the parade ever since.
