Dunedin Military Tattoo will feature all things Scottish on Saturday

DUNEDIN

The Dunedin Military Tattoo — a musical massing of Scottish clans, flags, pipers, dancers and drummers — will take over Dunedin High School's stadium Saturday night.

It kicks off a week of Scottish-oriented events, culminating with the 45th annual Dunedin Highland Games April 9 at Highlander Park.

For the second year in a row, the Tattoo's featured band will be the U.S. Marine Corps Logistics Band from Albany, Ga. Formed in 1990, it is one of 12 bands in the Marine Corps. Each year, the 50-member ceremonial ensemble travels tens of thousands of miles to perform at scores of venues throughout the United States.

The event also will feature the Second Time Arounders, a well-known St. Petersburg-area marching band of adults who originally marched in high school, college and military bands.

A variety of other kilt-clad groups will perform, including bands from Dunedin's middle and high schools, the city's pipe band, and others.

  1. Tampa's Lance McCullers shows killer instinct in pitching Astros to World Series

    HOUSTON — It felt like the beginning on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park, the arrival of a new force on the World Series stage. The Astros are back, for the first time in a dozen years, and they want to stay a while.

  2. Jones: Where are the difference-makers on the Bucs defense?

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — They can't tackle. They can't cover. They can't pressure the quarterback, let alone sack him.

  3. Bucs-Bills journal: Breakout game for Bucs tight end O.J. Howard

    Bucs

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — It's obscured by the final score and a disappointing loss, but Bucs rookie tight end O.J. Howard had a breakout game Sunday, exceeding his season totals for catches and touchdowns in one afternoon.

  4. Vladislav Namestnikov is Lightning's top-line 'secret'

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — Nikita Kucherov is piling up the goals. Steven Stamkos is an assist machine. They make for an impressive pairing in a league that favors scoring pairs over the more traditional three-player scoring lines.

    Vladislav Namestnikov (90) has three goals and 10 points on a line with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov.
  5. Bucs-Bills report card: Grading the Bucs' 30-27 loss at Buffalo

    Bucs

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Hard to believe, but this was only the second time in their history that the Bucs played a regular-season game in Buffalo. After Sunday loss, they wouldn't mind going another 40 years without playing here again.
