As the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships commenced on Glasgow Green – members of Wake & District were engaged with drumming instructor Tom Foote on the greens of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol Training Center. Tom has been studying and teaching pipe band drumming for over 3 decades. He has played in the grade one ranks with the 78th Frasers Toronto, Toronto Metro Police, Peel Regional — and we are pleased to have helping with the continued development our program. Wake & District has grown into a formidable presence of pipers, side drummers and mid-section drummers with over 50 playing members. The more we practice at home and rehearse together, the faster we can move on to bigger and better things as a band.
We’ve come a long way since our first gig on 10 September 2006.
People come and go.
Uniforms and tunes may change.
Our mission never wavers.
