The City of Thorold Pipe Band was formed in April 1986 when six men held a meeting in a home in Thorold, Ontario. The group agreed to form The City of Thorold Pipe Band, which would be the first pipe band in the history of the Canada’s most patriotic city.
The meeting was held in the home of James (Jimmy) V. Greig, and assisted by his friend and pupil Mitchell McDowell. The vision of a pipe band in their hometown was a goal of Greig and McDowell, and men were happy to realize their dream come true.
