Reporter Christine Johnson said,

"The Shorecrest High School Marching Band will make its fifth trip to Ireland on March 14 to play in Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Parade. The band, consisting of over 100 musicians accompanied by bagpipers, dancers, and flags, were invited to participate by the city of Dublin. 
"The band is an all-volunteer ensemble that rehearses outside of class time and prides itself on its Scottish heritage, proudly wearing the traditional kilt and uniform of the Clan Gordon. Shorecrest is unique among American high schools in that it boasts a bagpipe band, offering bagpipes as a music class."
Christie did a long interview, dancing with the Highland Dancers, and getting a mini-bagpipe lesson from the pipers.

This Saturday, March 10, the community is invited to a free send-off concert and parade down 25th NE. They'll be wearing street clothes, as their uniforms are packed for the trip.

Shorecrest is located at 15343 25th Ave. NE in Shoreline.
