A BAND with a difference will be bringing its musical fusion to Northwich later this year.

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are set to perform at Northwich Memorial Court on November 26.

Formed in 2002, the past few years have seen the Red Hot Chilli Pipers become the most famous bagpipe band on the planet.

The band’s achievements have reached incredible heights, with a groundbreaking fusion of traditional Scottish music and rock/pop anthems – proudly called ‘Bagrock’.

A spokesperson for the band said: “The Chillis have never been more in demand for their infectious style of feel-good music which appeals right across the age range to people all over the world.

“They have collected together an impressive group of musicians, dancers and singers from Scotland and further afield, many holding World Championship titles and all seriously good players with impressive credentials and qualifications.

“In 2014, The Chilli Pipers released a live DVD and CD entitled `Live at the Lake`.

“In an explosive evening of entertainment captured on this live DVD and CD, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers recorded their most adventurous project to date – bringing 16 musicians and dancers across the Atlantic to perform at Milwaukee Irish Fest, the US spiritual home of the band.

“In February 2019, the Pipers and Tom Walker released a new version of his massive hit ‘Leave a Light On’.

“The release is in aid of Nordoff Robins, the music therapy charity, and it went straight into the iTunes top five.

“The collaboration came about after Tom performed with the Red Hot Chilli Pipers at Murrayfield Rugby Stadium before the Scotland v Italy Six Nations match.

“In June 2019, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers released a new studio album entitled ‘Fresh Air’ – an exciting combination of brand-new songs and carefully selected covers.

“In a new departure for the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, many of the songs include lead vocals.

“Some of the highlights are ‘Leave the Light On’ featuring Tom Walker on vocals, Leonard Cohen´s ‘Hallalujah’ and ‘Shut Up and Dance’ from the American band Walk the Moon.

“Both songs feature the incredibly talented singer Chris Judge on vocals.”
