New (Scotland) in your community

If you are in the Enfield area and happen to be out on a nice Thursday evening in the warmer weather, you may hear the soulful sounds of the highland pipes and drums.  New Scotland Pipes and Drums, formerly 36 Pipes and Drums, has been holding practice at the Enfield Legion since early 2021.

 New Scotland Pipes and Drums is a volunteer Pipe and Drum band (not for profit organization) who have established a strong objective for over 40 years of providing our membership the opportunity to join and take part in continuing the proud Celtic traditions of Nova Scotia. With a primarily adult membership, our goal is to afford pipers and drummers an opportunity to return to playing and, in some cases, learn to play in a band setting. The band is committed to competition in Grade 5 at Atlantic Canadian Pipe Band Association events in the Maritimes.

The community of Enfield would know our band as we have been taking part in the Enfield Remembrance Day services since 2005. This really has led to our becoming located in the area, as well as our growth in our existing relationship with the Legion. A little about what instigated the move. In one word…Covid. Our usual practice facility located in Halifax was significantly impacted during the pandemic, so we were forced to look for a new practice facility. We reached out to the Legion’s executive, and they were happy to offer us a practice facility. Since that time, we have been practicing weekly and very much look forward to the opportunity to participate in events and competitions in the upcoming months.

We are always welcoming to new members. If you have piped or drummed previously, or interested in learning, we can offer you some basic lessons to knock off the rust, and if necessary, help find more suitable instruction.

We are excited about becoming a larger part of the community and would welcome opportunities to play. Please contact us to discuss, or drop by the Enfield Legion on Thursday Evenings between 7-9 pm.
