The Mugdock Pipers were founded in the 1960s by Mr. Jim Lynch, Urbana, to promote the art of the Highland Bagpipe in the Champaign-Urbana area. Members have been drawn from among UIUC students as well as from the wider community. Current members are from Champaign, Urbana, Villa Grove, and Oakland.The Mugdock Pipers are named after Mugdock Castle in Scotland.
Catch them for the “Piper’s welcome” at the Independent Media Center on Friday just before 6:00pm. Then follow them over to the the Iron Post patio where they’ll play another short set by the fire pit!
