Bad Haggis (USA) will probably hold on forever to the best band name mentioned on this website 😀
Great name aside, they are an electrified Celtic fusion band with a strong connection to Alasdair Fraser’s Skyedance band project; Eric Rigler and bassist Mick Linden from Bad Haggis were a part of that amazing lineup. Bad Haggis plays a dynamite fusion of Scottish Trad, funk, jazz and world music. It’s a dazzling mix of genres and impressive playing – very danceable and fun, too 🙂
Note: piper Eric Rigler is something of a legend himself: he’s played the pipes on a zillion American and British movies and tv shows that have anything to do with Scotland or Ireland – including Braveheart, Titanic and, oh yes, Outlander. And he’s even played them pipes on a Dream Theater track “The X Aspect” – talk about crossovers and mashups!
