Red Hot Chili Pipers Schedule
The Red Hot Chili Pipers has exceeded their expectations since the ensemble of pipers,
keyboardists, guitarists and drummers established their music group in 2002. After this group from Scotland entered and won
the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) show When Will I Be Famous, it was clear becoming famous was not just a pipe dream
for the Red Hot Chili Pipers. The final moments of the Graham Norton hosted show were exciting. The Pipers were head-to-head
against a string quartet and won the prize by one vote, 51-50. The Red Hot Chili Pipers not only won ten thousand pounds,
the band received attention for its entertaining performances. While the band playfully adopted the American Rock band Red
Hot Chili Peppers name, the Pipers sound is uniquely its own in spite of covering others' songs. If there is ever a time to
hear bagrock live, it is a Red Hot Chili Pipers' show. Get your tickets to see them in New York and keep an eye on StubHub
to see when they are coming to a town near you.
About the Red Hot Chili Pipers
Collectively the band holds
three music degrees from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and the drummer is at least rumored to be a world champion
snare drummer. There is certainly no shortage of musical talent or instrumentation skills. They are noted as created a bagrock
movement that brings both the bagpipes and rock music together. Stuart Cassells, the Red Hot Chili Piper's founding member,
is thought to be one of the key movers and shakers in this movement. Cassells won the BBC Radio Young Traditional Musician
of the Year award in 2005 and was the first person to graduate from the Academy with a degree in bagpipes. While the band
experienced much of its success with Stuart Cassells leading the way, he resigned from his post after close to ten years.
In 2011, Stuart Cassells left the band to pursue new goals after having suffered from focal hand dystonia. According to Cassells,
"My left hand refused to stay on the chanter. It was like my left hand wasn't my own, it wouldn't stay still, like someone
else was controlling it. I knew in my head how I wanted to play but I couldn't because my hands would curl right up and tense
up and move involuntarily. They weren't doing what they were supposed to do." It has been said that after trying various treatments
(surgery, physiotherapy and Botox injections) in order to fix the issue, it was evident that Cassells was not going to rejoin
the band. In his place is the Kyle Warren, who has in recent years won a World Pipe Band Championship. While the group no
longer consists of the original lineup, you don't want to miss this brilliant act live.
