About Us

Under the leadership of Pipe Major Scott Williams, Pipe Sergeant Madelyn Evans-Langlois, Drumming Instructor Ray Halliday, and Lead Drummer Judy MacMullin-Smith, the Clan Thompson Pipe Band has its headquarters in Stellarton, Nova Scotia. First formed in 1984, the band competed successfully at the Grade 3 level for almost a decade, winning the Grade 3 North American Championship in 1989. In the early 90s, the band took an extended layoff, but was re-formed in 2006 and has become a popular concert and parade band. With pipers and drummers of all ages, who come from many different parts of the province, we strive for excellence and are proud of our teaching program. If you are a piper or drummer, or want to become one, contact us. We welcome new members and have teaching programs for anyone who might like to develop piping or drumming skills.
