Default History of Pipers' Societies and Drone Clubs

I'm wondering if anyone could reccomend any sources (preferably online) that might shed some light on the history of pipers' societies. Are there any such groups considered to be the 'original' pipers' societies or drone clubs? I was recently thumbing through Cannon's The Highland Bagpipe and its Music, with little luck. Thanks in advance!

I'm sure there are a number of piper/drummer/band-related sites. However, in working on the history of our band, I found reference to such organizations (e.g., Order of Scottish Clans) by going (online) through newspaper archives. Good hunting!
