Celtic Cross Pipes & Drums Photo & Video Highlights

Celtic Cross was the opening act for Gaelic Storm in Bloomington, IL in October 2013. 
Additionally, we were asked to perform the "Mingulay Boat Song*" with Gaelic Storm.  (above)
(sadly, the tuning for this event was affected by the hot stage lights while waiting - we regretfully were not exactly pitched with the Gaelic Storm player)

We are honored to lead the procession of veterans through the Greater Peoria Airport for the Greater Peoria Honor Flight

In March 2013, The Chieftains asked us to perform with their band during their concert in Bloomington. (below)

Of course we enjoy St. Patrick's Day every year!  We do parades in Peoria & Bloomington/Normal,
then split the band up to do a Pub Crawl in both cities for the remainder of the day.

Celtic Cross also participates in the MWPBA band competitions as a Grade V band. 
Competitions keep the band always working to improve our playing, and forms a "camaraderie" among members. 
We have a great time together!
