Musical Performance

Highland Reign Band

Highland Reign, an international touring Scots American folk rock band from Indianapolis, takes the tunes of the old country and breathes a rocking new life into them!

With traditionals such as “American Stranger”, originals like “Carry On” and “The Streets of Edinburgh”, and many, many more, Highland Reign has become one of America’s favorite Scottish folk rock bands!

With over 20,000 CDs sold, “My Heart’s in the Highlands” is the most recent release by Highland Reign! This CD has the trademark upbeat vocals, lilting Scots Irish fiddle, catchy lyrics, and bagpipes/guitar! Many of the songs were written while on their tour of Scotland/Ireland! Highland Reign appears at venues and festivals all across America, Scotland and Ireland!

With wailing bagpipes/guitar tunes, lilting fiddles, and upbeat vocals, Highland Reign will rock you back to the old country!

Special thanks to the Indianapolis Scottish Highland Games & Festival for providing all the equipment for the Hadi Highland Games
