Kansas City, Missouri - The members of Cameron & District Pipe Band of Kansas City recently had a day-long clinic with world champions Dr. Terry Lee and Stephen Creighton. The band has been working hard to prepare for the 2023 contest season and we greatly appreciate the piping, drumming, and ensemble advice given by these two masters. Cameron & District continues to grow in numbers and our weekly evening rehearsals, as well as our monthly daylong rehearsals, have proven to bolster our signature sound.
