With an audience of more than 5-million viewers on any given day, the Grade 1 Alberta Caledonia Pipe Band of Calgary and  Edmonton  will bring quality piping and drumming to the “Live! with Kelly” morning show on Wednesday, April 4th, as a featured musical group.

The popular syndicated American television morning talk show will broadcast throughout the week of April 2-6 from Banff, Alberta, as part of an Alberta tourism promotion.

“The band is extremely excited and looking forward to this great experience,” Alberta Caledonia Pipe-Major Andrew Smith said. “We feel fortunate to participate and represent the province of Alberta once again throughout North America. Not too many pipe bands in the world get opportunities like this. I hope as many friends and family of the band members get to enjoy this as much as we will.”

Although it competes relatively infrequently, Alberta Caledonia has been a regular competitor in Grade 1 at the Worlds Pipe Band Championships. Smith took over the band after the 2010 season.

The band is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary in 2012 and plans to travel to this year’s World’s.
