Dunedin, Florida is famous for beaches, a picture perfect downtown and now, is home to the #1 Grade 2 pipe band in the world after winning the World Pipe Band Championships at Glasgow Greens in Glasgow Scotland!
The City of Dunedin Pipe Band started in 1964 as an outlet for young adults that had taken up piping and drumming while attending Dunedin schools. Dunedin has a Scottish arts program headed by Pipe Major Iain Donaldson and Drumming Director Eric MacNeill that begins at Dunedin Middle School, carries graduates over to Dunedin High School, and continues with adults in the City of Dunedin Pipe Band.
Members of the Band are all volunteers and donate their time and efforts to maintain their status as a first-class band. When they compete throughout the United States, Canada, and Great Britain, they act as ambassadors for the City of Dunedin and the State of Florida.
