First Highland Watch Biography:

The First Highland Watch started as a bagpipe band in the Philadelphia area back in the late 60’s, and evolved into a street band (playing parades and concerts) to a successful competition band. The First Highland Watch competed at the Grade 4 level for many years in the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association, finishing in the Top 10 several times, and 2nd out of 55 bands in their most successful season.

An invitation for the First Highland Watch to play an in-store concert at an indie record store led to an idea to add electric guitar and bass to the show. A few experimental gigs later, the band realized they had something unique…more Rock and Roll than an electrified Celtic Folk group; a Rock band using bagpipes as one of the primary instruments.
