Red Hot Chilli Pipers


For the first time at the blacksheep Festival, but not for the first time in Bonfeld: The folk favorites of Folk im Schlosshof are back!

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are a founded in 2002 Scottish band from Glasgow. The musicians play bagpipe, guitar, keyboard and drums, among others. RHCP are among the first to combine folkloric bagpipe music with Rock’n’Roll.

Besides cover versions of well-known classics like “We will rock you” by Queen, “Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water” or Coldplay’s “Clocks”, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers also have their own compositions.


The bagpipers are graduates of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music, and drummer Steven Graham is World Champion of the Drumming Championships and winner of the Dewar Arts Awards. Band leader Stuart Cassells was the BBC Young Trad Musician of the Year.

The debut album of the RHCP, “Bagrock to the Masses”, was awarded platinum.

In 2007, the band won the BBC-hosted show “When Will I Be Famous?”. In the same year she also won the Scots Trad Music Awards in the category Best Live Act for the first time.

In the autumn of 2012, the “Chillis” took a longer break to relax and record the album “Breathe”, which was released in mid-2013. In 2014, they performed again at T in the Park in their Scottish homeland. And now they are back: Equipped with fantastic playfulness and loads of hits in their luggage.
