The Kenmore & District Pipe Band came into being in the year 2001 when a group of people with a common appreciation for Scottish piping and drumming gathered in order to enhance that appreciation by improving their musical skills. Some of these people brought previous piping and drumming experience to the group; others were beginners. The group included all levels of ability, all ages, both genders and people from a broad spectrum of trades and professions. Inevitably, it was not long until performing in the public became one of the group's activities.
Under the leadership of Pipe Major Jim McGillivray, the band has become an able and increasingly popular performing group. A group that strives for excellence while enjoying both personal and musical compatibility.
The Kenmore & District Pipe Band takes part in many festivals and events around the greater Seattle, Snohomish and Skagit areas.
For the first time we participated in the 29th Annual Hawaiian Scottish Festival which was held April 10th & 11th, 2010 in Honolulu, Hawaii. This was a very successful trip. The band played in the opening ceremonies with the Maui Highland Band and the Honolulu Pipe Band. Kenmore & District Pipe Band also had the honor of entertaining the crowd with a half hour stage performance during the festival.
