Come enjoy an incredible concert by the legendary Celtic musician, Eric Rigler! Eric will be accompanied by guitarist Dirk Freymuth and fiddler Wanda Law.

Eric Rigler's legendary 40-year career on the bagpipes is world-famous. From performing "Amazing Grace" at President Reagan's funeral to providing music for films such as Braveheart, Titanic, Men in Black 3, Cinderella Man, Austin Powers to performing on CD's for Phil Collins, Josh Groban, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Rod Stewart to providing music for TV shows, such as Outlander, Black Sails, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Battlestar Galactica, The Simpsons, and South Park, Eric has been called "the most recorded piper in history".

A native of Los Angeles, Eric has devoted his life to the Scottish bagpipes, Irish uilleann pipes & pennywhistles. With a list of credits unparalleled in the genre of Celtic music, Eric’s sounds have touched people worldwide.

Unforgettable are his solos on one of the best-selling original motion picture soundtracks of all time, Titanic, or the musical spirit of William Wallace in Mel Gibson’s Braveheart. Movie-goers saw Eric pipe Clint Eastwood and Hilary Swank into the boxing ring in Million Dollar Baby.The lyrical sounds of Eric’s uilleann pipes still grace the radio waves on the mega-hits “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban and “True Colors” by Phil Collins.

Eric’s diverse range of gigs spans the globe: from playing a private family party for Steven Spielberg to performing in Tokyo with Japan’s most famous guitarist, Kazumi Watanabe and Scotland for a concert with Paul McCartney, and touring the Americas with Salsa legend and Hollywood actor, Ruben Blades.

A Meet-and-Greet- session will follow the concert.
