Mayo Clinic invited the Rochester Caledonian Pipe Band to play in Peace Plaza as a musical tribute to the Mayo Clinic staff for their work throughout the pandemic.

“This is a big deal,” Pipe Major Mike Watson said. “We get to play in Peace Plaza and then this will be recorded for all the patients as well. So this is an honor for our band.”

The show drew quite the crowd of employees, patients and community members.

Mayo had originally asked the band to play back in February but because it was too cold to play outside the group opted for a summer show.
