Winter Storm, the annual pipe and drum battle roars into Kansas City today and stays the weekend. The very best, the cream of the crop of Highland pipers and drummers will compete and perform and you can be part of it, even if you can't tell a sporran from a scraper. The main public event is the big concert Saturday night at 7:15 P.M. in the Community Christian Church, 4601 Main. Doors open at 6:00 P.M. Purchase general admission tickets at the door, north entrance, Saturday beginning at noon. Cash, checks, and credit cards accepted.
A variety of workshops and legendary after-parties will also be going on. Find all the details on the Winter Storm website.
Head on out there. Maybe wear some legwarmers under the old kilt though, it's cold. I'm sure no one will laugh at you.
