Join us as the members of Black Watch and The Band of the Scots Guards command the stage at the Lied Center with a mix of color, fantastic sound, traditional music and military flair. Approximately 70 musicians will captivate the audience with expertly-delivered music from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. The Pipes and Drums of the Black Watch: Since 1745, the Black Watch's music has inspired troops and intimidated adversaries. Today, in addition to serving as musicians, the Scottish pipers and drummers serve in the elite British Army machine gun platoon. The Band of the Scots Guard: The band boasts many of the finest instrumentalists and soloists to be found in the military services today. These musicians have appeared at many of the top concert venues in the United Kingdom and the world. The Scots Guards were originally formed in 1642 by King Charles and are currently stationed in London with duties including the daily Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.
