The Philadelphia Emerald Society Pipe Band prides itself in being the premier Irish pipe band in the Delaware Valley since 1973. We are the ONLY local Irish pipe band that competes regularly at the Irish Feiseanna and Scottish Highland Games around the East Coast, and has travelled three times to Ireland to compete in the annual All-Ireland Competitions. As such, we have raised our playing level above that of many street bands and can ensure the very best in quality and enjoyment in an Irish pipe band performance.

The Philadelphia Emerald Society Pipe Band, mini-band or individual pipers are available for parades, festivals, weddings, funerals and other events.
