Hamilton Celtic Pipes and Drums

Established 2006

In memory of

Pipe Major and Drum Major

 Winifred E. Stanley

A page in this site is dedicated to her memory... 

Hamilton Celtic Pipes and Drums was established in memory of

Winifred E. Stanley by Pipe Major Sara H. Kent in 2006. Winnie, as her

friends call her, was a dedicated piper who taught piping to the the senior

associates of this Bagpipe band. Remaining devoted to her memory and her

love of Celtic music those enthusiastic members of this band, who were

once Winnie's students and colleagues, continue to keep this music alive by

inspiring youths and people of all ages to learn the music and instruments

of Celtic history.

Under instruction of Pipe Major Sally Kent are the pipe students, whose talents

aspire to reach the same excellence in pipe music that Winnie's former

students and colleagues now exhibit. Under drum instuctor Erick Paden are

several students who are eager to learn Celtic drumming.

If playing an instrument is not your talent but you desire to be a part of

this unique troupe, consider learning the marches of the unit

by joining the ranks of the Colour Gaurd, directed by Drum Major Dick Clark. 

See schedule of events page

of the site for practice schedule and come join this passionate group

to experience the Bagpipe music of Scotland, Ireland and the national music

of our Celtic past. The opportunity awaits you to learn piping, marching and drumming. 

 

The Hamilton Celtic Pipes and Drums is available to perform for your

wedding, parade, party, church function, funeral service or for any occasion where

you would like to hear the bagpipes played .

 Please call or email Sally Kent to discuss arrangements.

 

Hamilton Celtic Pipes and Drums

The banner introduces the band, a colorful display illustrating

Scotland’s white on blue Saltire; and the green, peaceful white

and orange colored bands of Ireland’s flag.

 

  Truely it is a remarkable integration of the flags of both

countries, designed by Liz Cusick.

 

   
 

 As the music presents, the Colour Gaurd will ignite and excite you with the visual displays, conducted and choreographed by the experienced Drum Major Richard G. Clark, whose voice booms through the crowds to command the band. The National flags of Scotland, Ireland and our beloved United States of America, gleam with their vibrant colours flying, as the strength and force of the Colour Guard will generate excitement. Other flags available for the march are the National flag of the United Kingdom, the Union Jack; the Royal Flag of Scotland, the Rampant Lion; and the American POW/MIA flag.


Advancing from the front, the pipers march with bagpipes skirling, and the music whirling through the air, to a certain place in your soul, abounding you with a feeling that only hearing the music can describe.

 

Lead by our dear and devoted Pipe Major Sara Hamilton Kent, our pipers will thrill all who draw closer to listen. The proud melodies of “Scotland the Brave”, “America the Beautiful”, and “Wearing of the Green” will sweep through you, as the pipers play with fierce force. 

What is that sound that pulsates through your body and throbs in your heart? The intensity proliferates as our percussion line of drums will echo a beat deep in your memory…

you will never forget the experience!

 

Young and old alike will enjoy the music of this strong entertainment band. Performing with both style and grace, the band members unite to engage the audience with exciting precision...and fill the listener with a sense of pride and enthusiasm for the well orchestrated traditional Celtic and American tunes.
