The Penetangore Pipe Band
The Penetangore Pipe Band is a competition band that provides advanced instruction in bag pipes and drums.
Formed in 2001, Penetangore is registered as a not-for-profit corporation. Its purpose is to enhance the art form of pipes and drums by sustaining an organization in its host region that can successfully compete at the North American Championship Highland Games and the World Championship Highland Games.
Named after a river that flows through Kincardine, Ontario, where the band was originally formed, Penetangore is pronounced Pen-ne-tang-gore. It is believed to be a deviation from an Ojibwe word that Scottish settlers understood to mean "river with sand on one side." The band wears corporate tartan provided by Bruce Power and rehearses regularly in Guelph, Ontario at the Red Chevron Club.
The Penetangore Pipe Band is now recruiting members for its 2014-2015 program. Rehearsals are underway. Please contact us if you are interested.
