Blue Ridge Brass & Pipes Performance

A performance of traditional and contemporary Celtic music at the Let It Rain Picnic Shelter at 2 pm.  Included with park admission. Blue Ridge Brass and Montreat Scottish Pipes and Drums began playing together in 1985.  Their first performance was at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in 1986.  Since that time they have performed at all the opening ceremonies and worship services for the Games, as well as special concerts.

The sound of bagpipes will fill the air at Grandfather Mountain April 28.  Blue Ridge Brass and Pipes, known for their annual performance at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, are making an extra trip this year to celebrate the Celtic culture.

The April 28 performance will begin at 2 p.m. and last approximately 45 minutes.  The concert is scheduled to occur at the Let It Rain Picnic Shelter, located next to the Nature Museum.  The performance is included in regular park admission and those attending are welcome to bring blankets or lawn chairs.  The concert will be moved into the Nature Museum Auditorium in the case of adverse weather.

  • I picked up my 6 year old son from school  and asked him if he could guess where I was gonna take him to spend the weekend. With eyes big and wide he asked, Grandfather Mt? I have never seen him get so happy. Or should I say, pumped up to the max. He thanked me over and over again, while packing for the night in the wild. As with most things in life can be, this was a gift that did not fade away or break like most  presents after minutes of play.  As we got closer  to the top he expressed his deepest thanks, I saw my boy grow up this weekend. I pushed him and he pushed me and together we made it all the way from 105 to the Swinging Bridge.  "Get Out More.  Make memories, not regrets."
