The Red Hot Chilli Pipers
A unique brand of 'bag rock' (that's bagpipes plus rock, if you were wondering) with stirring tunes and energetic performances. Expect everything from 'Flower of Scotland' to Coldplay's 'Clocks', via AC/DC and Deep Purple.
Celebrating 20 years of touring the world, bagpipes with attitude and drums with a Scottish accent. This blazing rock band has a show so hot it should carry its own health warning!
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers were voted Scotland’s ‘Live Act of the Year in 2007 and 2010 at the Scots Trad Music Awards. Since they walked away with the top prize on UK primetime TV talent show, ‘When Will I Be Famous’ in 2007, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers haven’t stopped for a breath, other than to inflate their bagpipes! Taking their signature ‘Bagrock’ sound to the masses,
The Chillis have fast become a global phenomenon, rocking far-flung shores from Melbourne to Milwaukee and everywhere in between. They’ve spent the last 20 years perfecting their phenomenal live act with sell out shows across the globe.
Kicking things off in December with their Scottish Tour, with an eight week tour of mainland Europe then coming home in August to perform at the world renowned Edinburgh Festival and Glasgow’s ‘Piping Live’-the band barely had time to do their washing before jetting off again! A six-week jaunt ‘Down Under’ followed with the guys managing to find time in amongst their hectic schedule to support the Scottish rugby team at the World Cup. Their Red Hot performances earned them a new legion of fans from Auckland to Adelaide! Further trips to the USA, Saudi Arabia and the UAE saw the band cement their reputation as one of the most exciting live acts around!
