Welcome to our website! We are located in Blairsville, Georgia and were formed in 2004 under the direction of Pipe Major Roy McKee, who came to the band with more than 16 years of experience. P/M McKee previously played with the Mizapah Pipes & Drums in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He retired to Blairsville and found that there were many in the community who Piped and pursued their Scottish heritage. The band is a Performance band in the southern Appalachian region and you are invited to explore our website and discover what we are all about and what we do.
Our band is a member of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association and is proud of our close affiliation with the local community and veterans groups in North Georgia as well as the annual Blairsville Scottish Festival and Highland Games held at Meeks Park the second weekend of June.
The band is always actively recruiting Pipers and Drummers, both experienced as well as beginners. Our doors are always open to anyone wishing to learn or participate in our band. We promise excellent instruction in a friendly, supportive environment, while inviting all interested in visiting our band to come join us at a rehearsal at Saint Clare's Episcopal Church in Blairsville on any Saturday morning beginning at 9:00 AM. For more information on time and place, please go to the Join Us link above.
