Proud ambassadors of Canada, the Province of Ontario, Brant County and Norfolk County, the award-winning Paris Port Dover Pipe Band has garnered a reputation for excellence - locally, nationally, and internationally.
Wearing the Lamont Tartan, the Paris Port Dover Pipe Band has performed for several Tattoos including Virginia International Military Tattoo, International Basel Tattoo in Switzerland and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
The band has also appeared in the Marymass Festival in Scotland, The Calgary Stampede, Mount Rushmore and the Crete Music Festival.
And, in addition to performances, the band also competes throughout Ontario and has placed in the World Championships in Glasgow.
The band’s most notable performances were with Sir Paul McCartney at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on August 9th and 10th, 2010 and again on October 17th, 2015.
Paris Port Dover Pipe Band provides young people of any skill level with instruction in Scottish music and gives them the opportunity to play with the band. We teach youth how to act as ambassadors for Canada, the province of Ontario and our local Brant and Norfolk Counties.
We strive to educate on the importance of giving back to local service clubs and non-profit groups by assisting with various ceremonies, memorials, parades and events through band performances.
Visit us any Wednesday night 7pm - 9pm at the Memorial Hall, 34 Main Street, St. George for our show band practice or Thursday night between 7pm and 9pm for our competition band practices.
