The Shenandoah Valley Pipe band was founded in early 2009 by pipe major Kathy Hawkins, several of her piping
students, and a small group of drummers who had never before played the highland drums. In the short time since the
founding, we have played a variety of festivals and parades and even won the best marching unit in the Staunton
July 4th parade. We have since grown to include six pipers and six drummers. The band provides traditional
Scottish and Irish pipe music to the Shenandoah Valley, an area rich with Scots-Irish culture and tradition.
