“America’s Band” in 2015: The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes
Proudly representing the US before the world at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
The only U.S. military college band to ever be invited to the exclusive Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will return to Edinburgh, Scotland, in July of 2015, with the help of supporters. The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes will again be the only U.S. band appearing on the medieval castle stage for the month-long festival of music, pageantry and demonstrations by military organizations from around the world. Broadcast to 30 countries and approximately 100 million people annually, it is the largest production of its kind in the world.
The 2015 festival runs from Aug. 7 to 29, at Edinburgh Castle. This is the third time The Citadel’s band and pipes have represented the U.S. after receiving the coveted invitation in 1991, 2010 and again for 2015. The band and pipes received an invitation in 2020, however the event was canceled.
The Citadel was the first military college invited to Edinburgh and is the only one ever invited since.
