36 Halifax Pipes & Drums


HollandThe 36 Halifax Pipes and Drums are a volunteer civilian pipe band from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and are affiliated with the 36 (Nova Scotia) Service Battalion. The band was formed in 1977 by Pipe Major Barb Stewart, who is still an active member. The band members are proud to wear the Nova Scotia Tartan. This was the first provincial tartan in Canada and reflects the great contribution of the Scots to the founding of Nova Scotia – New Scotland.


The 36 Halifax Pipes and Drums has traditionally been a non-competitive parade band, with members from Halifax, Truro, New Glasgow and surrounding areas. This year, under the direction of Pipe Major Peter Allen, the band has entered into competition at local highland games. The band also performs at concerts, conferences and special events throughout Nova Scotia and beyond.  Recent great highlights have been the band's participation in various military events in the Netherlands in 2005 and 2010 celebrating the 60th and 65th Anniversaries of Holland's Liberation by the allied forces.


36 Halifax Pipes and Drums are pleased to make their first visit to Bermuda for the 2015 Bermuda Tattoo!
