Biography

Bagpipes with Attitude, Drums with a Scottish accent, a blazing rock band and a show so hot it should carry its own health warning!
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers were voted Scotland’s ‘Live Act of the Year in 2007 and 2010 at the Scots Trad Music Awards.


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!

Taking their signature ‘Bagrock’ sound to the masses, The Chillis have fast become a global phenomenon, rocking far-flung shores from Melbourne to Milwaukee and everywhere in between.

With three albums already under their belts, the band’s most recent release ‘Music for the Kilted Generation’ took Bagrock up another gear in 2010. With clever covers of ‘Long Way to the Top’ by AC/DC, ‘Baba O’Reily’ by The Who and a great version of ‘Lowrider’ by War- just a few examples of how well rock tunes fit on the bagpipes! Previous live album and DVD ‘BLAST Live!’ (REL Records, 2009) has already gone triple platinum in Scotland plus second album ‘Bagrock To The Masses’ (REL Records, 2008) has just achieved gold status in the UK.

The Chillis have spent much of 2011 perfecting their phenomenal live act with sell out shows across the globe. Kicking things off in April, with an eight week tour of mainland Europe then coming home in August to perform at the world renowned Edinburgh Festival and Glasgow’s ‘Piping Live’-the band barely had time to do their washing before jetting off again!

    but the Chilli Peppers are known for being lawsuit happy when it comes to people using any likeness of their name. The Chilli Pipers are an exception. Thats what I meant

    Actually there are plenty of bands that do close names for comedic purposes that get rights to use that name from the original. (eg: Cannibis Corpse with Cannibal Corpse)

    Chilli Pipers are one of the rare cases where the Chilli PEPPERS gave the go-ahead to use of the likeness of their name. I know a few of the boys, and the belief is that the Peppers didnt think the Pipers would do as well as they did, when they allowed them to use the likeness of the name. Local boys have done good, well proud of them aw.
