Ben Dearg Pipe Band

The Ben Dearg Pipe Band was a pipe and drum band founded in the 1960s by Ian Sturrock. The name 'Ben dearg' is Scots Gealic for "red mountain".

The band was honored as Alabama's "Official State Pipe Band" by former governor George Wallace.

After a period of dormancy, the group was reorganized as the Heritage Pipes & Drums, which survives today as the Ian Sturrock Memorial Pipe Band.
