See the Keith Highlanders at the KPC and enjoy the best of traditional Scottish piping, drumming and Highland dancing from the best-known pipe band in the Puget Sound.  Full Moon Ensemble (http://www.great-music.net/fullmoon) returns to the KPC to play spectacularly crowd-pleasing Celtic ballads, the boisterous, up-tempo folk songs and lively jigs and hornpipes!  Youíll marvel at Alisonís melodious voice; the blistering fiddling by reigning U.S. Grand Master Fiddle Champion Daniel Carwile and Amy Carwile, Danielís wife and, more importantly, past winner of the Northwest Regional, Washington State, Pend O'Reille International, Rocky Mountain, and Colorado Open Fiddling Championships; the magical fingers of Scooter Muse, five-time winner of the State of Alabama & Tennessee Valley Championship titles for 5 String and Old Time Banjo; the wit and rhythm of bass player Frog Palmer, the story-tellingest sombitch you ever did meet; and the youthful exuberance and powerful drive of percussionist Doug Stokes!

Champion Solo Piper Jori Chisholm (http://bagpipelessons.com) of the Four-time World Champion Simon Fraser University Pipe Band (http://www.sfupipeband.com) joins the KHPB Concerts to play some of the finest solo piping to be found anywhere in the world.  Jori is the first and reigning winner of the United States Gold Medal Piping Championship and recently returned to Seattle from Scotland, where he took firsts in both the March and the Strathspey and Reel at the Glenisla Highland Games, and placed in piobaireachd at the Birnam Highland Games, the Glenfinnan Highland Games and the Cowal Highland Games.

The Highland Dancers from the Marian Webb School of Highland Dance and Irish step-dancer Erin Pressentin return for their seventh consecutive year to delight the audience with their fancy footwork!

The Keith Highlanders Pipe Band         Formed in 1952 as a non-profit organization, the Keith Highlanders Pipe Band seeks to broaden the public's interest in and appreciation for traditional Scottish piping, drumming, and dancing both in and beyond the Pacific Northwest. Prompted by a visit to Seattle by the 12th Earl and Countess of Kintore to celebrate the Band's twenty-fifth anniversary in 1977, the Band sent a contingent to Scotland in 1980, culminating with a ceremony in Stonehaven, the Earl proclaimed the Band to be "the Official Band of the Clan Keith", the only such honor given to a pipe band outside of Scotland. The Band's international reputation has risen dramatically in the past four years, with two appearances at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, including a 6th place (out of 40 bands) finish at the 2004 competition, as well as back-to-back wins as the Washington State Grade 4 Champion and appearances in Scotland in 2002 to celebrate the 1000th Anniversary of the Clan Keith and the Band's 50th Anniversary.
