We are looking forward to the Northwest Junior Pipe Band perfoming for us!

The NWJPB is a competition and performance-oriented pipe band, traveling each summer to Scottish Highland Games, competing against other bands and playing for the thousands of people who attend these events. In 2008 Northwest Junior Pipe Band was be the first youth pipe band from Washington State to travel to Scotland since 1969.

Founded in 1995, the band wears traditional, civilian-style Scottish uniforms with MacKenzie tartan kilts.

NWJPB is committed to nurturing the values of dedication, practice, teamwork, respect, responsibility, community service and tradition – always in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. Each year we donate several performances to a variety of causes. Band members can earn valuable community service hours for school in this way.

Our Featured Performer for the evening is Liam Hilder

Liam Hilder is 19 years old and has been piping since the age of 6. He was taught by his parents David and Shaunna Hilder, and is currently a member of the Dowco Triumph Street Pipe Band.

Liam is a two-time Grade One BCPA Grand Aggregate Champion, winning the title in 2013 and 2014 consecutively. He also won both the Nichol-Brown Chalice Invitational and the George Sherriff Memorial Invitational in 2014, and is one of very few to have won both of these prestigious events in the same year. Liam currently competes in the Professional class after his debut season in 2015.

Outside of bagpiping, Liam attends the University of British Columbia, where he is studying Engineering.
