The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, a 9-piece ensemble consisting of pipers, guitarists, keyboards, and drummers perform at the Newton Theatre soon. 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.
Formed in 2002, The Chillis have fast become a global phenomenon, taking their signature "Bagrock" sound to the masses with their unique fusion of rocked up Bagpipes and clever covers of popular songs from all genres. Their trademarked sound is a unique fusion of traditional pipe tunes – like “The Flowers of Scotland," - “The Hills of Argyll," and “Amazing Grace” - and contemporary anthems like Queen’s “We Will Rock You."
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers perform at The Newton Theatre at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24, 2020. Tickets can be purchased at The Newton Theatre box office at 219 Spring Street in Newton or online at www.TheNewtonTheatre.com; or by calling 973-940-NEWT.
