The Newport R.I. Ancient Order of Hibernian Division 1 Pipes and Drums is a Grade V member of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association. We are based out of Newport, R.I. and have members from Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We are an award winning band that participates in private functions and parades throughout the northeast.

Our band practices Tuesday evenings from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM in St.Augustine’s Church Hall located at the corner of Carroll Ave. and Harrison Ave. Newport, R.I. AOH Pipes and Drums Newport, Rhode Island 02840

We were honored to serve as host band at the 2017 National Governors Association Summer Meeting on Friday, July 14. Playing a medley of American and Irish tunes, the band escorted Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo, First Gentleman Andrew Moffitt, and son Thompson Moffitt. Raimondo and family were joined by thirty-one state governors in the celebratory procession from the steps of the Rhode Island State House to WaterPlace Park for a special WaterFire lighting.

Raimondo hosted the three-day conference which unites the nation’s governors biannually to discuss some of the most pressing issues facing the country and to share best practices on how to better serve the American public. United States Vice President Michael Pence, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Tesla CEO Elon Musk were among the meeting’s keynote speakers.
