Pipe dream: The Citadel's band to play in Scotland

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A band from South Carolina's military college has a performance at a prestigious event in Scotland.

The Regimental Band and Pipes from The Citadel leaves on Wednesday for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. The event is a monthlong nightly festival of military music and pageantry.

The Citadel is the only military college ever invited and is making its second trip to Scotland. The band also played at the event in 1991.

It's also the only band from the United States at this year's event.
