The Bellingham Pipe Band is a self-supporting/non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, teaching and playing at a high standard, Scottish Highland bagpiping and drumming in the Bellingham and North Puget Sound region.

One of the oldest pipe bands in the Northwest, the band was originally formed in 1961 as the Clan Cameron Pipe Band, under the direction of Pipe Major Bill Paterson, who – with his family – also founded the Bellingham Highland Games that same year. The current name was adopted in the late 1960s to reflect a more local identity.

Since that time, the band has performed at literally thousands of regional events, including parades, concerts, highland games competitions, graduations, military and veteran’s services, memorial ceremonies, schools, athletic and other events around the Puget Sound Area. Currently we practice, and play year round at a large variety of events, with an emphasis on continually improving our playing level for summer highland game competitions.

Recent band highlights include: Placing 2nd in Grade IV at the BC Annual Gathering in March 2005 & April 2003, Leading the Welcome Home Parade for the USS Lincoln in Everett – May 2003, playing for the Western Washington University graduations and other special events, and US Navy ceremonies at NAS Whidbey Island.

The full band, quartets, pairs, or individual pipers and drummers are also available for private performances. Please call or email for more information and availability.
