The most famous bagpipe band on the planet, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, will be bringing their unique brand of ‘bagrock’ to the Newport Show with two live performances in the main ring. Organisers are delighted to have secured the appearance of the band which has a massive global following.
Show president Richard Maddocks said, “Their groundbreaking fusion of traditional Scottish music and well-known pop and rock anthems really does have to be seen to be believed. They’ve sold out tours as far afield as America and India, performed at some iconic events including the Olympics and the BBC Proms and festivals such as T in the Park, and they count Sir Paul McCartney and the Queen among their fans.” The show takes place on July 8 – visit newportshow.co.uk to find out more.
