Fixin’ to toss back a green pint and want to do a St. Paddy’s Day jig? Here’s some info

St. Patrick’s Day is Sunday, which means green beer – well, green everything – bagpipes, Irish grub and a lotta leg (hello, kilts).

If you love hearing bagpipes, you’ll be able to get your jig on with The Boise Highlanders, Boise Firefighters Pipes and Drums, and the City of Trees Pipes & Drum Corps — and not just on March 17, but all weekend.

Boise Highlanders

This group has been helping Boise celebrate St. Patrick’s Day for more than 20 years. They have four units that make up an armada of pipers who appear at bars and clubs throughout the Treasure Valley.

The Boise Highlanders have four teams that include at least four pipers, a snare drummer, tenor and bass drummers, and Boise Highlander dancers doing the Scottish version of the jig. Donna Jackson
