Grand Traverse Pipes & Drums Fundraiser Ceilidh (“KAY-lee”) – February 24, 2018


A cèilidh is a traditional Scottish social gathering. In its most basic form, it simply means a social visit. In contemporary usage, it usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing, either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place. Join us for our 2018 fundraising Cèilidh!

Tickets are $15 (plus Eventbrite fee) in advance or $20 at the door. Ticket price includes your admission. There will be a cash bar and availability of food to order off a menu. You can print your ticket but we will also have a list at the door of who purchased in advance.

Children 10 and under are $10 (pay at the door). Children under 3 years are free.

2018 proceeds go towards band instruments.

He was a great man even as a cadet in blackdown school of pipes and drums, was always making sure we were going in the right direction! Will be missed for sure! Cheers to you Neil!

Sorry to learn this. Neil Lester always showed his love/respect towards all pipe bands. A true professional. RIP

This is the side of Neil we often saw:

I spent a long weekend with Neil in April, 1996 at the short-lived (but great!) North America's Cup games in Sarasota. He was the field drum major, and I was bands steward. What a fine gentleman in every respect. Sharp, funny, professional to the core. Miss him already.

"Massed bands: Wings! ... or something like it."

God speed
