Band Roster 2019
Red Deer Legion pipe Band
The Red Deer Legion Pipe Band was formed in 1948 as a girls' band, and at the time, it was under the direction of Pipe Major Ted Elder and Drum Sergeant Sam Baxter. In addition to participating in street parades, cultural and recreational events in and around Central Alberta. In the past, competitions have taken the band around Alberta as well as British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Hawaii, and Scotland. We visited Hawaii in 1987 and made our first trip to Scotland in 1992. The band made its second trip to Scotland in 2004 to participate in both competitive and non-competitive events. Our most recent adventure took us to NW Europe in 2014 on a tour of the many battlefields, landmarks, and cemeteries of the First and Second World Wars. It was an experience we will never forget and a true privilege. The band is currently under the direction of Pipe Major Glenn MacLeod Interest in piping and drumming is presently strong as evident by the number of individuals of all ages currently receiving instruction weekly by members of the pipe band. This will help to ensure a solid membership in years to come.
