follow us on facebook




Based in Maxville Ontario, and sponsored by the Glengarry Highland Games, home of the North American Pipe Band Championships, the Glengarry Pipe Band can be seen competing in Canada, the U.S., and overseas as well as performing at local charitable events, community functions, and parades.We strive to accomplish the best in music and to foster a friendly competitive spirit and community involvement in our youth.

The Grade 3 band is led by Pipe Major Ryan Ross with lead drummer Jim Bush.

The Grade 5 band is led by Pipe Major Erin Bell.


As the 2015 season ends the Glengarry Pipe Band would like to extend our profound gratitude and well wishes to outgoing Pipe Major Ross Davison who will be stepping back from his leadership role in the GPB to focus on his teaching career and his playing with the Ottawa Police Services grade one band. While Ross will be missed, his great work with the band during his tenure will continue to be heard in our music for many years to come.


The Glengarry Grade 3 band will be led in the upcoming season by P/M Ryan Ross, a long time member of the Glengarry Pipe Band family who brings with him a wealth of experience from his years working with the Glengarry Pipe Band and his time spent competing as an Ontario Grade One soloist. The band looks forward to playing with Ryan as he works to move Glengarry forward to the top tier of the Ontario Grade 3 circuit.
