Who is the Northwest Junior Pipe Band?

The Northwest Junior Pipe Band (NWJPB), based in Shoreline, is the only youth pipe band in Washington State and is well known throughout the Pacific Northwest. The band is comprised of pipers and drummers aged 8-18.

NWJPB is proud to be the 2015 and 2016 BCPA Grand Aggregate winner, Washington State Champions and the US West Coast Drum Corps Champions.

The band has travelled to Scotland three times to compete in the World Pipe Band Championships, most recently in 2015, where they placed 6th in their division, making them the highest ranked juvenile band outside of Scotland.

NWJPB is dedicated to preserving Scottish musical heritage and developing young musicians. The band operates its own Pipe Band School offering beginning instruction for pipes and drums for youth ages six and up. Along with competing and performing, band members learn the true meaning of dedication, teamwork, responsibility, and serving their community.

Northwest Junior Pipe Band is one of those rare groups that provides enriching, and fun experiences for youth, as well as something highly prized by our kids – a strong social network supporting one another through life-long friendships!

Shoreline and Edmonds based NWJPB plays a variety of venues (private and public), including parades, Veteran’s and Memorial Day events, Northwest Folklife, competitions all across the Northwest, British Columbia and abroad, weddings and funerals, and coming up, their own concert held at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.

If you are interested in learning more about the band, or want to support the NWJPB program, join the band at their annual fundraising concert, or stop by the Calvin Presbyterian Church in Shoreline on any Thursday evening, where the band practices from 6:30-8:30. Just listen for them - you’re sure to find them! NWJPB, Growing Pipers and Drummers in the Northwest since 1995!

NWJPB is a registered 503(c) Non-Profit, all proceeds go to outfitting the band, travel expenses, and teaching.

We pride ourselves on welcoming all newcomers! Beginners are welcome!
