The award-winning “bagpipers who rock” will bring the heat on April 1 with traditional tunes and renditions of rock favorites
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, a band built around bagpipes, will return to the Ashwaubenon Performing Arts Center on Saturday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m.
The Pipers pump out a signature musical fusion known as “bagrock,” with audience members delighted by traditional bagpipe tunes (“The Flowers of Scotland” and “Amazing Grace”) as well as clever covers of pop/rock anthems (Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” “Clocks” by Coldplay, “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, and AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck”).
Formed in 2002, the Scottish band rose quickly in international popularity after winning the top prize on the UK TV show “When Will I Be Famous?” in 2007. The Pipers have performed in sold out venues from Beijing to New York, displaying a peak level of musicianship in their 20 years of existence. Four members have degrees from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
The April 1 concert at the Ashwaubenon PAC is an experience that should not be missed, if you can handle it! It’s bagpipes with attitude, drums with a Scottish accent, a blazing rock band and a show so hot it should carry its own health warning!
Tickets to The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are $40 and can be purchased online at ashwaubenonpac.org or by calling (920) 494-3401.
