It's the Red Hot Chilli Pipers at the Waterbury Palace!

It’s Bagpipes. It’s Rock. It’s Bagrock. AC/DC meets the poet Robert Burns. Where rock anthems sit comfortably alongside the great tunes from the glens and the mountains of Scotland.

It’s The Red Hot Chilli PIPERS — (NOT the Peppers!) — a 9-piece ensemble consisting of pipers, guitarists, keyboards, and drummers — who have been rocking the world from New York to Beijing to Melbourne and everywhere in between with musicianship of the highest order and a passion for pipes that will leave you breathless. The band has four music degrees from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and all the pipers and drummers have played at the top level in bagpiping.

18th Annual Mystic Irish Parade March 19

Put on your best green gear and take part in celebrating one of the region’s largest parades. Secure your spot along the parade route which starts at Mystic Seaport Museum and extends throughout downtown Mystic to the Mystic Museum of Art, and see why people return to this lively event year after year. With over 30,000 spectators, 2,500 participants, and the most pipe bands in New England, it’s sure to be a fun time for all. Sláinte, Mystic!
