Enter the Haggis, a popular Celtic rock quintet based in Toronto, will give an open-air free concert next month on the University of Rochester's River Campus.

The kilt-wearing band will perform at 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12, on the steps of Wilson Commons. In case of rain, the concert will be in the May Room inside Wilson Commons.

Enter the Haggis made its debut in 1996 at the NXNE Music Festival in Toronto. Two years later the band released its first full-length CD titled Let the Wind Blow High, followed by Aerials in 2001 and Enter the Haggis LIVE! last year.

The band's instrumentation combines the highland bagpipe and the fiddle with guitars and a driving rhythm section. The group's sound has made them a favorite at festivals and clubs across North America, including an appearance at the Rochester Irish Festival the weekend before their River Campus performance.

The concert by Enter the Haggis at the University is sponsored by Wilson Commons Student Activities and UR Concerts. For more information, call (585) 275-5911.
