The Scottish capital has pulled out all the stops to give the global superstar a warm welcome, reflecting her Scottish heritage with a grand display of traditional music.

A post shared by @scotishdailyrecord and @edinburghlive captured the moment The Reel Time Pipe Band, featuring eight Highland bagpipers and three drummers, performed at the stadium in honor of Swift’s arrival.

It’s been a lot of fun recreating ‘Love Story’ on the bagpipes and putting this ensemble together,” he added.

The video has garnered a positive response, with one user commenting, “It’s a big thing for Edinburgh and Scotland to have her kicking off her British leg in Edinburgh, great for the economy worse things weans could be doing than going to a concert.” Another swiftie remarked, “Good for Scotland—making memories and welcoming everyone with joy.” A third fan said, “Oh my goodness.
