Pipes and Sticks on Route 66 comes to OSU-Tulsa
The sounds of bagpipes will fill the air at Oklahoma State University-Tulsa on Tuesday, April 10 when five of the world’s most accomplished pipers and drummers make a tour stop as part of Pipes and Sticks on Route 66.
“These five players are celebrating the Mother Road by taking a tour down Route 66, and performing concerts and teaching workshops in every state along the historic highway,” said Bill Tetrick, director of the City of Tulsa Pipes and Drums. “This is a great ensemble of some of the best in the world of piping and drumming. Each member of the group has won solo piping and drumming awards, and are well-known for their incredible talent and for their entertaining way on the stage.”
The group consists of pipers Stuart Liddell, Willie McCallum, and Angus MacColl and snare drummer, Jim Kilpatrick, all from Scotland, and bass drummer and percussionist Mike Cole, from Chicago.
The concert will consist of traditional tunes, as well as crowd-pleasing numbers frequently requested. Humor is incorporated into the concerts and audience participation is encouraged.
Sponsored by the OSU Pipe Band, the event will be held in the OSU-Tulsa Auditorium at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available at pipesandsticks.ticketbud.com, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the door.
