5. Schedule

Spring of 2018

From October through to March, we generally mostly rehearse, learn new material, enjoy just piping and drumming.  We usually don't have any performances.  Then St. Patrick's Day comes (in March), and the world changes!

If you're looking at the band's website for the first time, enjoy exploring!  Please see the "Notes" following this paragraph.

Note:

1. This schedule is speaking to band members, as a means for keeping information available at all times, so it will be "operational" in tone.

2. Schedules are always subject to some changes, and should be considered "provisional."  We will seek to provide up-to-date information, but it's always best to call to confirm the Highlanders presence anywhere.  Jim Campbell (303-243-0300 cell).

Weather Note regarding Practices:
Kiowa is at 6,200 feet and part of the "Palmer Divide," which is notorious for having severe weather. 
In the past years, we've cancelled practice due to snow, ice, flooded road conditions; and in warm months: high wind and severe thunder-storms (if there's hail, there's probably a tornado-watch on).  So...unless it's bright, sunny and calm out, you might do well to call to make sure that practice is still happening, prior to making the trip out to Kiowa. If the weather looks questionable, call Jim Campbell (303-243-0300 cell).




Performances:
We are available to do performances, generally with at least two weeks notice, provided we're not already scheduled.  Take this link for information on hiring the 79th Highlanders Pipe Band for your next special event.
