Stone of Destiny Pipe Band was formed by Paul Lampson, Hal Grout, and Garth Tweyffort in the fall of 2011.

These three fellow bandsmen have played together for many years throughout different bands in New England. They often joked about the day when they would just start their own band.
After realizing that there were several other pipers and drummers in the area that also were interested in competing, the need to create an avenue for this was obvious. Although there are several bagpipe bands in the area, most of them do not compete.

The band proudly wears the Innes of Learney tartan with the kind permission of Sir Malcolm Innes and his family.

After a very successful 2013 season, the band was promoted to Grade IV by the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association.
