We here at the Irish Pipers Band are constantly striving to perfect our art and share our love of Irish pipe band music with the community and our fellow musicians alike. In 2010, the Irish Pipers Band welcomed a number of new members to our ranks, gave over 40 public performances throughout the year (including over 25 performances during St. Patrick's season!), and secured a Western United States Pipe Band Championship. We couldn't have done it without the unfailing support of our family, friends, fans, and the entire San Francisco Irish community. So as always, thank you for your support!
