Coldstream Pipe Band has existed since the 1950s and encourages youth to join its ranks for initial training and then official duties. The band practices most Monday nights at 7pm in the Primary School Hall. Currently the band has an excellent blend of experience and youth. The Pipe Major is Duncan Bell, the Chairman is Gordon Thompson (01890-882455) and the Secretary is Elspeth Bell (01890-882211). The band leads the horse cavalcade on the Thursday of civic week and carries out several official duties, not only in Coldstream, during the year.
2016 has been a very successful year for the band and any budding pipers and drummers are invited to join the rehearsals and teaching on a Monday evening. Contact Pipe Major Duncan Bell on 01890-885862 for advice and a chat.
