Band available for hire anywhere in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont area.
We are a nonprofit organization, dedicated to preservation and enjoyment of Scottish music and tradition. The primary purpose of the Band is to encourage those members of the general public who are interested, especially the youth of the community, to pursue a Scottish musical education without creating financial burden. A secondary purpose is to provide instruments and/or help with uniforms for those members of the Band who would otherwise find participation impossible. We are able to accomplish these goals with the money we earn at performance events, fundraising and through the generous donations we receive from various individuals, businesses and organizations such as the St. Andrews Society of Maine. Senior band members teach the basics of music and the skills of piping and drumming free of charge. These free lessons are available at both of our weekly practice sessions for all who are interested. We have two practice locations to accommodate both the southern and northern contingents. Our Sunday weekly practice is from 5pm to 7pm at Oceanwood Camp in Ocean Park, Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Our Thursday weekly practice is from 6 to 8 pm and is held at the Oakland Fire Station, in Oakland, Me. Click here for directions to both locations. We urge anyone, of any age or background, who has an interest to participate. If you are already proficient on the pipes or drums and are interested in joining our band, please stop by practice and speak to George Pulkkinen (Pipe Major) or Heather Maines (President). We are now booking for events in 2006. You can contact our Pipe Major George Pulkkinen email@example.com or President Heather Maines firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a performance. -
