Aloha to the Annapolis Irish Festival - Chesapeake Caledonian Pipes and Drums
Here comes the Chesapeake Caledonian Pipes and Drums. From its website (link),
The Chesapeake Caledonian Pipes & Drums was formed in 1985 to promote the highest standards in both traditional and contemporary bagpipe and drum ensemble performance. Since then, the band has regularly participated in parades, concerts, and pipe band competitions throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
The band wears the Ancient MacDonald tartan coupled with white police shirts, black tie, and black waist-cropped Naval mess jackets, in honor of the Naval heritage of Annapolis.The most distinct feature of our uniform is the cap badge representing a Maryland Blue Crab, a symbol of the Chesapeake Bay, the region that is home to our pipers and drummers.
