If you have a drop of Celtic blood running in your veins you will be invigorated by foot tapping jigs, reels, hornpipes, strathspeys and polkas. Your soul will be uplifted by haunting airs and ancient marches. No matter if you are from the green isle of the shamrock or the rugged highlands of the Scotch thistle you will enjoy our concert and the Celtic Ceilidh (dance) on Saturday afternoon. Don’t forget your dancing shoes!
