The Rogues are one of the biggest names on the Renaissance Festival circuit. The band holds multiple gold medals from the World Pipe Band Championships held in Scotland each year.

The Rogues have been nominated for Grammys in the categories of Best New Artist and Best Contemporary Folk following the release of their critically-acclaimed album, Off Kilter.

The Rogues have performed at numerous large venues including the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, the North Texas Irish Festival, CeltFest Chicago, the Chicago Highland Games, and the Texas Scottish Festival, among many others. The band has a eclectic multi-instrumental sound helping them prove that they have the creativity to combine various genres of music.

The Maryland Historical Society was founded in 1844 and is the world’s largest museum and library dedicated to the history of Maryland. Occupying an entire city block in the Mount Vernon District of Baltimore, the society’s mission is to “collect, preserve, and interpret the objects and materials that reflect Maryland’s diverse cultural heritage.” The society is home to the original manuscript of the Star Spangled Banner and publishes a quarterly titled “Maryland Historical Magazine.” More information about the Maryland Historical Society can be found online at http://www.mdhs.org.

The cutting edge Celtic band The Rogues, have performed globally for over one million people while creating nine albums and winning multiple world championships.
