Once again, the Liberty High School Grenadier Band & Bagpipers will be on hand as special guests and will be opening up for the Red Hot Chilli Pipers.

The Grenadier Band is a eight-time winner of the Lehigh Valley Music Award for Best Marching Band and is under the direction of Kevin Long.
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers - an 8-piece ensemble consisting of pipers, guitarists, keyboards, and drummers - have been rocking the world from New York to Beijing to Melbourne and everywhere in between with musicianship of the highest order and a passion for pipes that will leave you breathless. The band has four music degrees from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and all the pipers and drummers have played at the top level in bagpiping.
Formed in 2002, The Chillis have fast become a global phenomenon, taking their signature 'Bagrock' sound to the masses with their unique fusion of rocked up Bagpipes and clever covers of popular songs from all genres. Their trademarked sound is a unique fusion of traditional pipe tunes - like "The Flowers of Scotland", "The Hills of Argyll", and "Amazing Grace" and contemporary anthems like Queen's "We Will Rock You", "Clocks" by Coldplay, "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol, "Let Me Entertain You" by Robbie Williams, and a fantastic rock medley of "Deep Purple", "Smoke on the Water", and AC/DC's "Thunderstruck".
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers have sold out shows all over the world, achieved gold record status in the UK for their first album and triple platinum status for their third. They have been acclaimed as the Best Live Act in Scottland on multiple occasions and their fan base includes Ewan McGregor, Sir Paul McCartney, The Scottish Rugby Team, Her Majesty the Queen and Samuel L Jackson.
