If you’re familiar with the movies BRAVEHEART, TITANIC, AUSTIN POWERS or CD’s by KEITH URBAN, FAITH HILL, JOSH GROBAN and PHIL COLLINS, or a fan of the hit TV shows OUTLANDER, THE SIMPSONS or SOUTH PARK, then you’re familiar with the sounds of BAD HAGGIS piper, Eric Rigler.

BAD HAGGIS fuses cutting-edge Celtic with influences of rock, alternative, jazz, pop, world beat, African and Latin influences. Driven by the dual leads of the “bagtar” (bagpipe & guitar) by Eric and guitarist Mike Hoffmann, to the deeply grooving rhythms laid down by bassist/vocalist Mick Linden and drummer Ryan Krieger, BAD HAGGIS produces a hearing-is-believing sonic experience.
