A sensation in their first appearance with The Grand in 2016, the most famous bagpipe band on the planet is back with the wailing pipes, screaming guitars, and driving percussion that has made them popular at home and abroad. Twice honored as the Best Live Act in Scotland, this is not your Grandpa Angus’ pipe band. The Pipers perform the latest hits and pop music classics like you’ve never heard them and can’t even imagine on bagpipes: Journey, Queen, Gangnam Style, the Titanic theme. The Scotsman praises the Pipers’ “awesome force of unapologetically populist Celtic showbiz.”
