Group Overview: PICTUS (PIK’-toos) : Arising from the primal heartbeat of Alba, Eire, Britannia and Gaul, to the haunting cries and ancient voices of the Picts, Celts and Norse, comes a fusion of drums, bagpipes and percussive dance that will stir your soul and move your body with it’s ancient and powerful rhythms.
“Pictus“, from the Latin word meaning “painted”, Pictus is more than just a “pipe and drum band”, they consider themselves “Neo Primitive”, reviving the spirit of primitive music from the Celts, Picts, Brittons, Gauls, Norse and beyond and bringing it into the 21st Century by incorporating modern musical elements and composition as well as Irish hard shoe dancing.
The spirit of the Bard is also alive in Pictus; they possess an engaging stage presence, a true feel for their ancient, ancestral ways and enough humor, wisdom and storytelling to round out their powerful musical talents. In addition to the great highland bagpipes and drums, you’ll hear Irish penny whistle, doumbek, djembe, Turkish Tupan and more.
With nationally acclaimed, award winning bagpiper John “Mr Piob” Holland, the 23 years of drumming and stage experience of Brad ”Vlad The Imbiber” Sprauer, and the 12 years of Irish dance performance of Lauren “Céilidh Shillelagh” Berry, PICTUS is a unique, powerful show that’s not to be missed!
