13th Annual Pipes in the Valley Festival

http://pipesinthevalley.com/

The 13th Annual “Pipes in the Valley” Celtic Music Festival transports you to another world on Saturday, September 27th, 11am-10:30pm at Mortensen’s Riverfront Plaza4 located at 300 Columbus Blvd in downtown Hartford.

Bands performing this year include the return of our colorfully creative and awesomely entertaining headliner, “Celtica,” the ever-popular thundering drums of “Albannach” and our latest new discovery, “The Langer’s Ball.”
“The Blaney Brothers” are a local duo new to PIV this year, as well as Ms. Haley Hewitt, the USA National Harp Champion! Also presenting for the first time, “Kilted Colin” will be on hand to tickle your fancy with a fun filled act of amazing feats you’ll not want to try at home!

The 5th annual Highlander Classic is a fusion of strongman as well as classic highland games. This event was created back in the 80′s by Dr. Douglas Edmunds of Scotland. It allowed both the Strongmen competitors and Highland Games Athletes to showcase their strengths together in one event.

Admission is free! Come join the fun for anyone of any age! The massed bag pipe bands will cross the bridge at noon, as is our tradition. The “Games” begin at 9am on the lower level by the river and you’re free to get there early for that. Celtic vendors, all manner of food and finely crafted microbrews from Olde Burnside Brewing are available, as well as a whisky tasting, puppet show, birds of prey, children’s activities and so much more!
