1st U.S. Pipe Band to be named Grade IV Champions in World Competition
Spend your lunch hour at the Alvarado Transportation Center and hear the ancient music of the Highlands. The High Desert Pipes and Drums formed 19 years ago with the mission of bringing Scottish Bagpipe music to New Mexico. Now, through the direction of Pipe Major Bill Horn and Drum Sergeant Daron Peters, they enjoy a statewide following and a worldwide reputation that includes becoming the first pipe and drum band from the U.S. to be named Grade 4 World Champions in European competition.
