Familiar with Hollywood’s OUTLANDER, BRAVEHEART, TITANIC, HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2, MEN IN BLACK 3, THE FUGITIVE, AUSTIN POWERS, THE SIMPSONS or SOUTH PARK? How about CD’s by JOSH GROBAN, KEITH URBAN, FAITH HILL, MEATLOAF, PHIL COLLINS, ROD STEWART, or MARIAH CAREY? Then you’re familiar with the sounds of BAD HAGGIS piper Eric Rigler.
For over 20 years, BAD HAGGIS has pioneered a genre-bending musical odyssey fusing Scottish & Irish traditions with elements of rock, alternative, jazz, pop, world beat, African and Latin influences. A true original, BAD HAGGIS continues to trail-blaze their melodious vision through writing original pieces and arranging traditional tunes & cover songs with unmatched flair…all deftly handled by their members’ musical virtuosity. Driven by the dual leads of the “bagtar” (bagpipe & guitar) by Eric and guitarist Mike Hoffmann, to the deeply grooving rhythms laid down by bassist/vocalist Mick Linden and drummer Bryon Holley, BAD HAGGIS produces a hearing-is-believing sonic experience.
Eric Rigler: Scottish Highland bagpipes, uilleann pipes, whistles
