Next up in the 2019 North American Pipe Band Calendar is the Mesa Caledonian Pipe Band from Arizona! Mesa Caledonian will be represented in the Calendar by Drum Major Kevin Conquest.
Kevin judges, teaches, and serves across the country. His service in the pipe band world is so extensive, he was granted a coat of arms by the Lord Lyon King of Arms (JEALOUS?) in recognition of significant contributions to Scotland's diaspora. This is a HUGE achievement that will quite literally go down in the history books!
The Mesa Caledonian Pipe Band is Arizona's premier competition Scottish pipe band. The band was founded in 1980 with just four founding members, and today boasts over 30 performing members!
The mission of MCPB is to preserve and promote the Scottish Heritage through the performance and education of the traditional music on the bagpipes and drums, and through the arts of Highland Dance and Drum Majoring.
