About Us
The Chicago Celtic Pipe Band was founded in 1997, by Jim Enright Sr. He started it with his daughter, sons, and a few close friends who had spent many years playing together in local bands. The band was formed to bring Celtic music to the area at various functions such as weddings, family gatherings, festivals and parades.

As the band grew in membership, it began to compete at the Grade 4 level. It strived to improve by working with many excellent instructors both locally and from other regions. With improvement, came more members and the band moved to the Grade 3 level. It is a proud member of the Midwest Pipe Band Association and has competed locally, throughout the Midwest region and in Canada. Also, the band routinely plays at the Irish Heritage Center Festival each summer. It is sponsored by Hackney's Restaurant in Glenview and can be found playing many performances there during the St. Patrick's Day season, as well as, the Fourth of July Parade in Glenview each year. The band continually works to grow and improve with each year.

The band will be fielding both a grade 3 and a grade 5 band for the 2018 season! The grade 3 band meets on
Monday nights from 7:00 to 9:00 at the Norridge Community center, located at 7774 W. Irving Park Road, Norridge, IL 60706.
