The Lia Fail is an ancient stone with a mystical and much debated history that is also swathed in mythology. With strong roots in Gaelic history and mythology, the Lia Fail is perhaps the strongest symbolic link in the shared heritage of the Celtic people of Ireland and Scotland. The stone is believed to have originated in Israel and to be the stone, or pillar, on which Jacob rested. This pillar had deep religious significance to the Hebrews and is alleged to have been brought to Ireland by way of Egypt and Spain by one of the lost tribes of Israel with the prophet Jeremiah. Over the millennia, the Lia Fail has come to be viewed as conferring symbolic and mystical powers upon those who possess it.

Named for this mythical stone, the Lia Fail Pipe Band routinely performs in a variety of special events in the Tri-State area, including the St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City and The New Jersey Governor's Annual Saint Patrick's Day festivities at the governor's residence. The band has also performed at a variety of functions at Princeton University, including the Annual Reunion of Princeton Alumni, the Saint Patrick's Day celebration at the legendary Ivy Club, and the famous Princeton P-rade that precedes the Princeton University graduation. Of course, Lia Fail has also traditionally performed at the opening of the St. Patrick's Day show at B.B. King Blues Club - as it does tonight.
