Parade Performer Spotlight!
Let me introduce The Rob Roy Pipe Band and Highland Dancers of Kingston, Ontario, Canada!
The group is a strong community organization with a long history of offering instruction in piping, drumming and dancing. The pipe band was established in 1953 with the dancers forming in 1962, making this year their 65th anniversary! As one of only a few permanently integrated band and dancer groups, Rob Roy performs in many engagements (parades, community events, competitions) a year throughout Canada, the United States, and Scotland.
We will have members of our grade 3 and 5 bands as well as a group of dancers travelling to New York to participate in Tartan Day 2019. We are excited to make our first trip to New York City and proud to be representing Kingston and Canada while we are there!
We are proud to be an organization that offers lessons to those of all ages and abilities, and we consider our teaching program to be one of the main factors in maintaining such a strong organization for 65 years. We also aim to keep the Scottish tradition alive in Kingston. Annually we run a highland dancing competition, a Robbie Burns dinner and the Kingston Scottish Festival. We spend much of our summers travelling throughout Ontario to compete at various highland games and have won the North American Pipe Band Championships twice in the last 5 years.
We can’t wait to welcome you all to your inaugural parade - we hope it’ll be the first of many to come!
