CHARLESTON Pipe band

© 2018 Charleston Pipe Band. All rights reserved.

Josh "Lurch" Collins learned to play the pipes at St Thomas Episcopal High School before coming to The Citadel to play pipes and earn a degree in mathematics. He joined our band while still in college, and acted as Senior Pipe Major from 2010 to 2014, acting as a key instructor in the band both before and after. 

When he's not playing with us, he plays with the Grade 2 City of Dunedin Pipe Band in Florida, which he has helped take top placings at the North American and World Championships. 

Josh mostly likes our "Grade 6" social unit — where he and PM JD Ingraham have coordinated several trivia wins. If you see him at a gig, ask if he knows any good jokes, but be warned, they're probably only for an 18+ crowd..
