Default Last day of hurricane season

Celtic groups remember hurricane victims and survivors

Baton Rouge - Members of the Celtic Society of Louisiana and the Caledonian Society of Baton Rouge will gather on November 30th, the final day of hurricane season, to remember all those who have been affected throughout the Gulf Coast region.

Bagpipe players from both organizations will meet at sunset on the November 30th at the USS Kidd to pay tribute to the hundreds of thousands of people who lost their homes and loved ones during the Hurricane Season of 2005 and previous years.

“We got the idea from the 9-11 tributes,” said Stan Masinter, of the Caledonian Society’s Baton Rouge Pipes and Drums. “We wanted to do the same for the hurricane victims.”

The groups have also sent word around the country to other pipers to do the same.

“Wherever you are at sunset on the 30th we want you to pipe a tribute,” said Marty Bergen of the Celtic Society’s Na Cait Dubh Pipes and Drums. “Celtic people throughout history have always marked tragedy and hope with tributes and usually with music.”

Another group in Mandeville, The Kilts of Many Colours, led by Steve Brownlee, will also be playing bagpipes in remembrance.

“We are hoping that you will hear pipes across the Gulf Coast and the nation at sunset,” said Brownlee.
“We will try to make marking the end of hurricane season an annual event.” The Kilts of Many Colours Pipes and Drums will be at the Mandeville Harbor pavilion around sunset on November 30th.

Hurricanes affect states from Texas to the New England each year and each year there is tragedy. These Celtic organizations want to remember those who were lost as well as those who survived.
