Kiltie Band: 100 Year Celebration

There cannot be anything that evokes Scotland more than the sound of a Pipe Band.  Its this sound, along with the kilt-clad members of the Kootenay Kiltie Pipe Band that will usher in the opening of Kiltie Band: 100 Year Celebration. The exhibition curated by Jean-Philippe Stienne, Archivist and Collection Manager at Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art and History, opens in Gallery B on March 2 at 2 pm and features photos and memorabilia from the museum’s archival collection.

Visitors can expect a fascinating look back at the rich history of Nelson’s own Highland Games - which were an annual fixture for 50 years - see photographs from Burns’ Night celebrations, parades and public events from the archives and admire the uniforms and instruments.
