We are looking forward to the challenge ahead!
The Chieftain of this year’s Pacific Northwest Highland Games, Fred Jessett, played in the Keith Highlanders many years ago. In 1960, the band played at Fred and Kris’s wedding as a surprise for them. The band was honored to be able to surprise Fred and his wife again at the games this year–57 years later! The band plays at the 2:45 mark: Video.
