Siz­zling Pipers

Where Berlin - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Formed in Scot­land in the early 2000s, the award-win­ning Red Hot Chilli Pipers cat­a­pulted to fame in 2004, when they per­formed along­side The Dark­ness at the T in the Park fes­ti­val. Their dis­tinc­tive “bagrock” sound comes from the fu­sion of bag­pipes with a rock band en­sem­ble, and their reper­toire is like­wise a com­bi­na­tion of tra­di­tional bag­pipe melodies and con­tem­po­rary cov­ers. Catch the red-hot show at the Columbia Club on 14 June. www.red­hotchillip­ipers.co.uk
