The Connecticut Valley Shrine Pipes & Drums will play in the upcoming St. Andrew’s Society Scottish Festival on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2009.
The festival, one of the largest in the state, will be held at the Goshen Fairgrounds, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy a bit of authentic Scottish culture.
There will be Scottish food, Highland Games, and representatives from several of the Scottish Clans will be there, if you’d like more information about your Scottish ancestry.
There also will be a dog show featuring Scottish breeds.
The highlight of the festival however is the music. There will be pipe bands from throughout the state, as well as various other Scottish musicians.
The CT Valley Shrine Pipes & Drums is a bagpipe band composed of members of the Sphinx Highlanders of Newington, CT and the Pyramid Pipes & Drums of Milford, CT. The two Shrine bands have combined on several occasions, such as the 2009 Masonic Grand Masters Day in Wallingford, CT to create a dynamic pipe band.
If you’re a Mason interested in learning the bagpipes or drums, please contact us at (860)666-5449 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tutoring is available.
