The Sons of Scotland Pipe Band from Ottawa, Canada had the good fortune of participating in the 45th annual Estes Park International Military Tattoo this September and they had a wonderful time.
They joined forces with pipers and drummers from across Canada and the United States, and played with the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing Band from San Diego. The US Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps and international Highland dancers made for a very special show to mark the return of this great event.
The band also performed at the Longs Peak Highland Games and did a parade through town – it was a full schedule and a lot of great music and new friendships came of it. Next year’s trip is already on the books for September 10 to 12, and they welcome you to visit the site www.epitattoo.com for all the details.
The Sons of Scotland is Canada’s oldest civilian pipe band. For details see: www.sospb.com
