Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com ) - Sounds of bag pipes echoed through the halls of the Holy Rosary School Monday in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day.

The Duluth Scottish Heritage Association's Pipes and Drums Band performed for school students, staff, and parents during an all–school assembly.

From kilts to drums and tassels...school officials say the authentic Scottish and Irish presentation is a time to celebrate music and provide an educational experience for students.

"It's also important to celebrate those cultures that are part of Duluth as a community or those cultures that make up our school. So, here is a family that does embrace those cultures and its here to share it with our entire student body," Jesse Murray, Holy Rosary Principal, said.

On Friday at seven o'clock, the band will be headed to the College of St. Scholastica's Mitchell Auditorium for the third annual St. Patrick's Day fundraising concert.

All proceeds go back to DSHA to help fund future events.
