2022 Performance Schedule

We're happy to announce our tentative schedule for the 2022 season. From community events to competitions we'll give you all the details you need to be able to catch the band performing across the region.


Church Services

Each year the band performs for a handful of special church programs known as "Kirkin' o' the Tartan" services. "Kirk" is the Scottish word for "church." Tartans, with their distinctive plaid, represent specific Scottish clans, regions, or regiments. The "Kirkin' O' The Tartans" is the presentation of a Scottish family's symbol, its tartan, at church for blessing.


This year we will be performing for the following services:


March 6th

First Presbyterian Church of Greenwood, MS

300 Main St, Greenwood, MS 38930


We will begin with a short concert outside of the church at 10:15am with the full service beginning at 11:00am.
