Free Scottish holiday concert
Submitted By Phil Lenihan
The Stewart Tartan Pipes and Drums will present their Free Spring Scottish Concert on Saturday, April 13 at The Christ's Community Church, in Hayward.
Bagpipes and drums will be featured with full band performances, solos, and quartets; Scottish ballads; and The Piedmont Highland Dancing School. Irish Bagpipes will be a special extra. Families are welcome and encouraged to come.
"The band is a relaxed group of musicians, drawn together as much by the camaraderie of the band as our shared interest in the music," said Paul Olson, Drum Major. Current membership is twenty-five, with experience ranging from one year to almost forty years. New pipers and drummers are always welcome. The band also has a Grade 5 competition band.
The Stewart Tartan Pipes and Drums has played at a mix of parades, shows, birthdays, weddings and special events, with performances at Disneyland, PGA's The President's Cup golf tournament, Silicon Valley Open, AT&T Park for the SF Giants, Oakland Raiders, Davies Symphony Hall, Facebook, and Mountain Winery with the Chieftains. Holiday Concerts are the highlight of the season.
The Stewart Tartan Pipes and Drums is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation. Donations are gratefully accepted.
