The Sons of Scotland Pipe Band of Ottawa
If you are interested in joining the Sons of Scotland as a piper or drummer, drop us a line. Our history dates back to 1896, but the mandate stays the same - provide free instruction to those who wish to learn, and then go into the community to present that music.
E-mail the band Manager Robert Derry at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on coming out.

The Sons of Scotland have been awarded the Caring Canadian Award by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston. The ceremony took place on April 7, 2014 at Rideau Hall, and members of the band were given pins on behalf of the pipe band.
