© 2023 Charleston Pipe Band. All rights reserved.
John Weed began piping in 2006 with the goal of not only learning how to play but to help further the art of Great Highland Bagpiping both inside and outside the Celtic cultural community, after being introduced to the bagpipes through what was then known as the City of Charleston Police Pipes and Drums instructional program.
He quickly became a stalwart member of the pipe band, serving in roles such as Grade 5 Pipe Major, Grade 4 Pipe Sergeant, band manager, fundraising officer, and board President.
His favorite thing about being part of the band is sharing the sights and sounds of the pipes and drums with others through public performances and demonstrations, so be sure to say hi next time you see him out!
