Andrew's Tips: Top North American Pipe BandsBy Andrew T. Lenz, Jr., Santa Cruz, California, ©2009-2010
Below is a list of Grade I and Grade II pipe bands in North Americacurrently, these bands are only found in the United States and Canada.
North American piping associations with links to their band listing (if available):
Alberta Society of Pipers and Drummers (ASPD) No band listing page on their site, see results.
British Columbia Pipers' Association (BC Pipers) Listing may be out of date.
Pipers' & Pipe Band Society of Ontario (PPBSO) Band listing linked at left of PPBSO page.
Southern United States Pipe Band Association (SUSPBA) Click on "member bands" at left. Listing is not always current.
Please note that not all associations maintain their band lists with the same degree of vigilance! The list below was compiled after talking with bnad members of the various associations since some lists were either unavailable, unmaintained, or not updated to reflect new band gradings.
The above list is believed to be accurate for the 2010 competition season.
