FREDERICTON SOCIETY OF
ST. ANDREW PIPE BAND
Fredericton, New Brunswick
The Fredericton Society of St. Andrew was formed in 1927, and currently has two pipe band based in Fredericton, New Brunswick.It has performed throughout Canada, the U.S., Scotland, England and France. It is the only pipe band in North America to have been invited and traveled to France playing for large audiences on numerous occasions a decade ago.
After winning the Grade 2 North American Championships in 2006, the band was officially promoted to Grade 1 by the Atlantic Pipe Band Association. In January 2008, it returned to it’s previous Grade level status.
After the summer of 2014, the Grade 3 band faced an uncertain future after losing a number of players to other bands and retirement from competition. They continued to build behind the scenes, and, after two seasons away from competition (2015 and 2016), returned to the circle at the Virginia International Tattoo as a Grade 3 band under the continued leadership of Drum Sergeant Justin Gallant, and now alongside his brother Christopher Gallant as Pipe Major.
