2014 St. Patrick's Day Weekend
March 15 and 16, 2014

We did five performances over the weekend (which is pretty light in the pipe band business,
but it is more fun not to be exactly running from gig to gig)

There were some areas still thick with spectators--along 17th Street and those blocks before the Reviewing
Stand at Coors Field.  All of these photos were taken after the Reviewing Stand.

79th Highlanders at the 2014 Pikes Peak Celtic Festival, 6-21 & 6-22-2014

This was a historic event, really: The Pikes Peak Celtic Festival is solidly back in business.
We had a display area (without the usual period canvas tent, which was not available to set up this time),
and we performed in the Massed Bands, then performed later each day, once our drummers could come
over, after the band competition.








Elbert County Relay for Life
Elbert High School Track
Town of Elbert, Colorado

Friday Evening, June 27, 2014

79th Highlanders at the 2014 Elbert County Relay for Life, Friday evening, 6-27-2014

We only have three photos of this event.  Held this year at the Elbert High School Track in the Town
of Elbert, before the lights came up, it was pretty dark.  It was also a little cool...just right for our navy
blue wool jackets.  Our task was to pipe the start of the "Memory Lap" at full dark (around 9:20 p.m.).
Except when we were actually piping, it was really quiet--you could have heard a pin drop.
