The Rogues

The Friends Folk Club is very pleased to announce a rare area appearance by the Celtic Band, The Rogues on Saturday, April 14th at 8pm. Known as "America's Celtic Band", The Rogues have been rocking the world since 1994! Founded in Houston in 1994, The Rogues created a new genre of Celtic music with exceptionally well-played pipes and driving percussion and have become award-winning international artists. From Scottish Highland games to performing with a symphony orchestra, The Rogues deliver a commanding performance. Starting at the Texas Renaissance Festival in 1994, the band soon began performing out of state and added Scottish Highland Games and Celtic festivals and corporate shows. They also won 1st place in the original Strangford-Lough Celtic Battle of the Bands. The Rogues have performed in Las Vegas, Scotland, Greece, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Canada, several cruises and all over the United States. Usually performing with 2 pipers and 2 percussionists, our roster includes 12 top notch players from around the country. Members of the band have competed all over North America and Scotland, and won 1st place at the 1998 World Pipe Band Championships in Grade III, performing with the Hamilton Pipe Band out of Houston, TX. The Rogues have produced 10 albums and 2 DVDs to date and are listed in the official Grammy book for several nominations, though falling short of the final 5. The Rogues have a tradition of supporting charities, sometimes holding their own fundraisers supporting individuals and causes for soldiers. The band even has it's own tartan in the Scottish Register of Tartans. Attendees are asked to bring nonperishable food items which will be given to the local area food cupboards. Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door. The Friends Folk Club accepts cash only. Children 12 and under are free. Doors open at 7:30PM, and the concert will start at 8:00PM.
