Band History

St. Ann’s of Hampton Pipes and Drums was founded in 1990 by the late Fr. William Hewitt.  St. Ann’s is a not for profit organization.  All the proceeds we receive are used for equipment, uniforms, instruction, transportation and competitions.  The band roster is comprised of people of all ages, and playing ability.

The band tartan is Irish County Louth and our home is based at St. Ann’s of Hampton Roman Catholic Church.  The cap badge we wear is the crest of St. Ann’s – A symbol of Jesus Christ, Mary and her Mother Ann.  The band drum head and the street banner also display this crest.

The band plays many events and parades in the tri-state area and competes in local Highland Games and competitions.  

The band has made numerous trips to Scotland to compete at the World Championships of Piping and has also performed in Edinburgh at its annual Fringe Festival.

St. Ann's has always been about family - and our goals as a group is to create a family environment for everyone to contribute and grow.

St. Ann's is led by Pipe Major Cliff Roberts - You can contact him at:
