• Scotland's Pipe and Drums of the Black Watch 3rd Battalion is an elite military regiment whose history stretches back almost three centuries. The precise origins of the group is unknown, however in 1716 a small band of 'hautboys' existed. The band grew in strength during the early part of the 19th century, and by 1838 could boast some 32 performers. Throughout the 19th century the band expanded, until in 1888 there was an establishment of 44. The Pipe and Drums of the Black Watch 3rd Battalion now travels the world, and in recent years has visited Australia, Bermuda, South Korea, France, Switzerland, Italy and of course Scotland.
• In the silence of an early morning, one hears the tap tap tap of the snare drum and the lonely call of bagpipes ringing through the Highland air -- a call to arms or adventure. For one night only, the band of the Black Watch and the Royal Regiments of Scotland and The Band of the Scots Guards will transport audiences to a time of high pride in Scotland with a diverse musical program that reflects their history and martial spirit.
