The Turlach Ur Pipe Band will perform with The Chieftains on March 4 at Hancher Auditorium in Iowa City. The Chieftains, a traditional Irish folk group, tour world-wide and have won six Grammys. They last invited Turlach Ur to perform with them in 2012. Since its inception in 2007, Turlach Ur has won numerous prizes and titles, and now fields two competition bands. Its Grade 5 band comprises student players (shown here practicing late into a summer evening), and its Grade 3 band is one of the top competition bands in the Midwest. The Chieftains concert is nearly sold-out, but Turlach Ur fans can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the band at the Newton and Pella locations of the Cellar Peanut Pub on Saturday March 14.
