"Some fancy pipe and drum solos proved conclusively that the group is indeed worthy of the many awards bestowed upon it."

The Kanawha Valley Pipes and Drums at the WV State Capitol,
Charleston, WV on July 1st, 2011.

... to the home page of the Kanawha Valley Pipes and Drums (KVP&D) from St. Albans, West Virginia. Our pipe and drum corps has been around for more than 25 years, and performs in parades, concerts, competitions and special events across the eastern United States. We are a member of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA).  In 1997, 1998 and 2000 we finished 5th overall in Grade 5 and in 1999 were upgraded to Grade 4. Due to some unfortunate deterioration in our membership, we moved back to grade 5 for the 2000 season.  After much hard work and determination, we were able to finish the 2000 season in 5th place in Grade 5.  In 2001 we were moved back up to Grade 4 once again. The 2001 season was a good one but changes in membership dropped us back out of competition in 2002. In 2009 we returned back to competition in Grade 5, good to be back..

The goal of our non-profit organization is to promote Scottish and Irish heritage. We achieve this through performances featuring the Great Highland Bagpipe and Drums, as well as through the instruction of piping and drumming in the highland style.
