The Quigley Highlanders Pipes and Drums, Glengarry’s community pipe band and the Glengarry Highland Games Friday night duty band are celebrating their 15th anniversary this year, and as usual, the band will be active over the entire Highland Games weekend. Members of the band are pictured here at last year’s Games being congratulated by Drum Major Chris Renwick who calls out the commands for Friday night’s Tattoo. From left to right are Chris Renwick, Pipe Major Ron Graham, Pipe Sergeant Ewen MacDonald, piper Lynn MacGillivray and Pipe Sergeant Shawn White. Behind Mr. White we can just make out Rob MacLellan. The band is under the leadership of Pipe Major Ron Graham and Lead Tip Scott Graham and up to a playing strength of 31 members including latest member Drum Major Jean Tessier. You can see The Quigleys at the Games’ Friday Tattoo and on Saturday participating in the Band Grade 5 March Medley competition as well as in both massed bands. On Sunday, Aug. 6, the band makes their annual appearance at the Kirkin' O' the Tartan at St. Columba Church in Kirk Hill, up the road from the former hamlet of Quigley’s Corners, now Lochiel, where the band takes its name from. Keep an ear out for the Quigley’s rousing bracket of sets that includes a new moving tribute to Glengarry Celtic Music Hall of Famer and piping legend, Connie Kippen Blaney who passed away in January. The Quigley Highlanders Pipes and Drums’ motto is “Know Your Past, Empower your Future" expressing pride in the strength and courage of the Scots Highlanders who left their homeland to set down pioneer roots in Glengarry.
