The Fountain Trust Pipe Band traveled to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, a neighborhood of Milwaukee, for the Milwaukee Highland Games on June 2, 2017. The band performed its brand new March, Strathspey, and Reel set which it will be performing in Scotland in 2017. The band placed third in the contest.

On the solo end, three band members performed on the day and took home prizes. Drum Major Doug Weisheit placed first in the Open Drum Major competition, piper Angus Martin placed 3rd in the Grade 1 Hornpipe/Jig and 4th in the Grade 1 MSR, and piper Chris Eller placed 4th in the Grade 4 Piobaireachd event.

Congratulations to Chicago Celtic Pipe Band for its first place finish in the MSR contest, and City of Chicago Pipe Band for its second place finish.

Midwest Pipe Band Association

After multiple years of hard work, amazing music, and clear communication with the music board concerning our intentions to always push to the next level, we have officially been blessed with the honor of being upgraded in the association. This change means that we will be held to a higher standard of music, and will be able to play higher caliber sets. We are very excited for this new journey, and intend to meet it with determination to put forth our very best effort!
