Putting a modern spin on the traditional "pipes and drums" doesn't do justice to the incredible piping and astounding drumming that is a Red Hot Chilli Pipers experience.
The band features Stuart Cassells, the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2005, Steven Graham a twice world champion snare drummer, and with three of the band members being graduates from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, the musicianship is outstanding. Stuart's piping has featured on The Darkness album 'One Way Ticket to Hell and Back' and on the soundtrack to the film 'Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire'.
The group is in great demand, performing all over the world from the USA to India at some of the biggest events and festivals. So we're absolutely delighted to welcome them back to Speyfest 2012.
