“The Pipes and Drums of the Princess of Wales’ Own Regiment has a new Pipe Major. On 4 December, 2012, Commanding Officer Lt.-Col. James McKay appointed Mike Weaver as Pipe Major. Mike has 40 years of piping and drumming experience involving 12 pipe bands across Ontario.
Mike is well known within the Kingston piping scene, most notably as the official piper for the Kingston Police Force, and as the convener of the annual Celtic Crawl. The PWOR Pipes and Drums reflect the history and traditions of a military unit which celebrates 150 years of service to Canada and to Kingston. The Band supports numerous community events throughout the year and attracts pipers and drummers with all levels of expertise. Mike seeks to grow the Band and he invites new members, experienced or beginners.”
