Fountain Trust adds new Drum Sergeant and Pipe Sergeant for 2018!
Effective August 19, 2017, Jess White will be taking over as Drum Sergeant for the Fountain Trust Pipe Band. Jess has been a competing member of the band since its earliest days, and at one point led the corps in the past. Jess has been a key member in building the local drum corps, and the band is excited to have her once again lead the band's drum line.
Also effective August 19, 2017, Angus Martin will take over the role of Pipe Sergeant for the band. Angus joined the band in the Spring of 2014 after moving to the area from Arizona. He previously played with the Mesa Caledonian Pipe Band from 2007 to 2012, and the Sir James McDonald Pipe Band in Portland, Oregon from 2000 to 2007.
Together with Pipe Major Campbell White, Bass Drummer EJ McNaughton, and Lead Tenor Laura Doll, Jess and Angus will form the rest of the leadership team for the band's trip to Scotland in August 2018.
