Johnstone Pipe Band are currently celebrating their 75th year of existence. They are under the leadership of Pipe Major Keith J Bowes, Pipe Sergeant Douglas Campbell and Leading Drummer Leslie Galbraith. They have made a rapid ascend to Grade 1, winning the Worlds in Grade 3A in 2014 and the Worlds in Grade 2 in 2015 and 2016.
In 2017, the newly promoted Grade 1 Band managed to cement their position within the grade. They won the medley event at North Berwick Highland Games and positioned reasonably well at the major championships.
They have a successful feeder system with Renfrewshire Schools in Novice Juvenile and a 2nd Johnstone Pipe Band who are also newly promoted having won the Worlds in Grade 4B in 2016 under Pipe Major Keith A Bowes. They have just recently appointed Leading Drummer Drew Caldwell to the feeder band.
