The Alberta Caledonia Pipe Band is a competitive grade 1 pipe band based out of Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

History[edit]

The group was originally established in Edmonton in 1982, as the grade 1 Edmonton Caledonia Pipe Band. However, the band's name was later tailored in the mid 90's, after receiving a large influx of players from Calgary. The band has recorded 2 CD's, "They Took Their Leave" in 1998 and "Another Round" in 2005.[1]

The band is currently under the leadership of Pipe Major Andrew Smith and Drum Sergeant Andrew Miller.[2][3]
