The Urban Highlanders
940 Bonisteel Rd. Trenton
The Urban Highlanders is a wide open musical adventure featuring bagpipes, saxophones, an array of tribal percussion, guitar and strings. It is the inspiration of bandleader bagpiper, songwriter and storyteller Grier Coppins. After a few decades of playing R&B inspired music with renegade bagpipe quintet Taxi Chain, Grier’s idea was to return to a more acoustic driven instrumental combo of ethnic inspired music as he had played throughout the 1980’s with Rare Air.
Frisky Jim Bish plays saxophone and an array of wind instruments, Mad Larry Graves plays skins & percussion. The band has featured a variety of virtuoso string pickers over the years including Ayron Mortley, Chris Bartos and Donne Roberts. Let’s see what this summer’s musical adventure brings to the patio!
Note: Our summer concerts will be held outdoors with wood fired pizza available. Gates open at 5 for the 6pm show. In the event of bad weather we will be able to move the concert indoors. The show must go on!
