BAND OF THE IRISH GUARD | Jan 25

The Band of the Irish Guards and Royal Regiment of Scotland brings all of the pomp and grandeur of the British Empire to Raleigh. A gifted group of musicians was gathered by Queen Victoria in 1900 to commemorate the bravery of the Irish Regiments, and quickly gained a reputation for excellence. It was the Band’s responsibility to inspire an esprit de corps among the troops, and it traveled extensively throughout both World Wars to give morale-boosting performances for those on active service. Now renowned across the globe, these Regimental Bands uplift spirits with rousing marches, folk songs, and celtic dances performing the music of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

Show playing in Raleigh Memorial Auditorium at Progress Energy Center

  1. My wife and I had the honor and privilige of attending the concert given by The Band of the Irish Guards and Argyll and Highlander Band and Highland Dancers on January 25, 2010. I served four years in the US Army and attended many performances given by other military bands and although ALL military bands are excellent, none can compare with the performance by the Irish Guards. They were absolutely fantastic; add to that all the band members mingled with the guests before the performance, during intermission, and after the performance. Bravo!
