Woods Hole, MA, is known for its many local festivals and town activities. Johnny Rotten Day is a day of remembrance for Woods Hole postmaster John Klink. Though John affected a gruff, uncaring attitude, his facade was transparent, and his love of the town was returned by all who knew him. Begun in 1995 when John retired, the festival is a gathering of locals playing Celtic music and bag pipes, sharing good food, and enjoying good company. The Brian Boru Pipe Band, from Falmouth, is a frequent contributor to the Johnny Rotten Day festivities, playing arrangements of Irish pipe music in his honor. Sandy Baldwin, from the USGS Woods Hole Science Center, is a new member of the band; she plays bass and tenor drums.
