The 46th Annual National Capital Area Scottish Festival

May 3, 2014
Rockville High School, 2100 Baltimore Road, Rockville, MD 20851, USA

The Rockville High School Pipe Band was originally formed in 1961 as
the Robert E. Peary High School Pipe Band in Rockville, Maryland. It was the first
high school pipe band in Maryland. At the beginning of the 1984-1985
academic year, the Band moved to Rockville High School due to the
closing of Peary High School.

Over the decades, the band program has produced many of the Mid-Atlantic’s (and EUSPBA’s) top names: David Ricklis, Bob Meade, Lisa Frazier, Paula (Porter) Glendinning, Donald Lindsay, Sandy Jones, Gavin Lindsay, Margaret (Peng) Rogers and many more. Many top bands in EUSPBA owe their talent and success to alumni of RHSPB.

For over 45 years, the Band has hosted the annual National Capital Area
Scottish Festival as their primary fundraising event. Attracting hundreds of
visitors, the Festival showcases several award-winning regional Pipe and
Drum bands and Celtic Performers.

Highlights Include:

  • Metropolitan Area Pipe and Drum Bands: RHSPB, City of Washington PB, MacMillan PB, MacMillan-Birtles PB, MacMillan-Dunn PB
  • Individual Celtic Performances
  • Irish, Highland and Scottish Country Dance
  • Raffles
  • Food and Drinks

An indoor event held, rain or shine, in the Rockville High School Auditorium, this year’s event begins at 7pm on Saturday, May 3. Admission is free to all, but donations to the band are gratefully accepted.  We hope to see you there!

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: When loosening a tight joint ensure both hands are as close together as possible. This will reduce the possibility of snapping the timber.
