The next group in our 2019 North American Pipe Band Calendar is the truly unique Blue Skye Pipes and Drums from Sarasota, Florida!
This band was founded in 2016 as the first and only all-female pipe band in the USA!
They put on an excellent stage performance, showcasing traditional Celtic music with a modern flair – often incorporating harp, penny whistle, fiddle, and even Highland Dance into their shows.
You can see them sporting their Isle of Skye tartan kilts at Celtic and Renaissance Festivals in Central Florida, and even a few appearances on TV. They have even opened for such famous acts as Seven Nations and Off-Kilter!
Below is their St. Patrick's schedule. If you're in the area, check them out this weekend!
Here’s a little taste of them covering a rather nice vocal rendition of a Piobaireachd (“pee-brock” – Gaelic for bagpipe music, considered the classical style of the Highlands) at a recent festival performance!
So excited to have them in the 2019 North American Pipe Band Calendar!! Stay tuned to hear more about their chosen "model"!
We know you'll pick up the 2019 Calendar when it arrives to the band, but please consider donating a SMALL amount, even $5, to help us with printing and all of the costs associated with the calendar. CLICK HERE for more information.
