Since they walked away with the top prize on UK primetime TV talent show, 'When Will I Be Famous' in 2007, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers haven't stopped for a breath, other than to inflate their bagpipes!

Formed in 2002, The Chillis have fast become a global phenomenon, taking their signature 'Bagrock' sound to the masses and rocking far-flung shores from New York to Beijing and everywhere in between with their unique fusion of rocked up Bagpipes and clever covers of popular songs from all genres!

With three highly successful albums already under their belts, the band has just released their fourth entitled ‘Music For The Kilted Generation’ on REL Records. Their previous live album and DVD ‘BLAST Live!’ (REL Records, 2009) has already gone triple platinum in Scotland plus their second album ‘Bagrock To The Masses’ (REL Records, 2008) received platinum in Scotland and silver status in the UK.
The Chillis spent much of 2010 perfecting their phenomenal show with an eleven date sold out tour of Scotland, an 11 week tour of Germany and a seven week jaunt across the USA as well as trips around the globe to Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, most of Europe and India which saw the band cement their reputation as one of the most exciting live acts around!

The musicianship is first class. The band has four music degrees from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD) and all the pipers and drummers have played at the top level in bagpiping. Responsible for the phenomenon of Bagrock are the Chilli’s founding member and Musical Director, Stuart Cassells, who was the recipient of the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the year in 2005 and the first person to gain a degree in bagpipes from the RSAMD. The band also includes twice World Champion snare drummer, Steven Graham .

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers put on a show guaranteed to amaze any audience. They are a genuinely unique experience!
