Pipes and Drums of the Black Watch

7:30 pm, Mar 11, 2013 | $20-$75
 
Not every bagpiper or drummer can also lay claim to being a machine-gun marksman. The musicians of the Black Watch have this honor. Every member of the elite Highland regiment placed first in a machine-gunning contest among Scottish infantry battalions. The Black Watch battalion dates back to the 1700s, and since then has fought in conflicts across the globe. An incomplete list includes: the War of the Austrian Succession, the French and Indian War and both WW’s. As with many performers, much importance is placed on the group’s uniforms. But their scarlet doublets, Highland purses and black hair tassels are a result of tradition, not fashion; and the red hackle on their bonnets is not just for a little extra pizzazz—it’s a centuries-old symbol of regimental honor.
