ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Suas u Piob!

"Raise the Pipes!" has been the motto of the Boise Highlanders ever since the first rock was overturned and our intrepid Pipe Major Ron Lopez first saw the light of day. What it really means is up to the linguists, but that’s OUR translation . . . and we’re sticking to it.

50 years, five decades, half a century. . .

That is a long time by anyone’s standard. For a bagpipe band it is impressive. For a bagpipe band formed in Boise, Idaho, it is truly astounding.

In 1961 a small group of dedicated individuals established the Treasure Valley Royal Highlanders in order to learn and perpetuate the music and dance of the Scottish highlands. Part of this dedication stemmed from a long history of Scottish immigrants to the state. In fact, bagpipes led a 4th of July parade in nearby Idaho City as early as 1864. Not all is potatoes in Idaho.

In 1974 the band changed its name to The Boise Highlanders to more accurately reflect its roots with the state’s capital city.

The following decades brought a period of ebb and flow with membership, ventures into the world of pipe band competition, several successful public concerts, and an always increasing number of dedicated members wanting the band to succeed.

We have learned a lot over the years. It is now time for us to share that with you. We hope you enjoy.
