The Sons of Scotland Pipe Band - established in 1896 in Ottawa, Canada
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.
