Blairsville Scottish Festival & Highland Games

We were very excited to be invited to perform at the 2014 Blairsville Scottish Festival & Highland Games on June 14th and 15th!  This was our first opportunity to perform an entire set of Celtic music.  It was a great experience for us, and we might just have to go kilt shopping for future Scottish Festivals!

Here are some of our favorite video clips from the festival:

“Bonnie Scotland, I Adore Thee”

“Torridon,” “The Velvet,” “Pretty Peggy,” and “Brumley Brae”

“Hill Of Thieves,” “Wild Mountain Thyme,” and “Heather and Eilidh”

“Loch Lomond”

“James F. Dickie,” “Punch In The Dark,” and “Dashing White Eejit”

“Jock O’Hazeldean,” “Jock Brown’s 70th,” “Blue Reel,” and “Road To Errogie”

Raven and Red performing “The Rolling Hills of the Borders”

Brittany shows off her five-string fiddle in a set of traditional Scottish tunes!

We had a wonderful audience!

It was a beautiful day for Scottish music!  We could hear bagpipes in the distance!

The introductions were given by comedian and host, Bob Valentine.

Here are a few of the many clans that were represented at the festival.

One last photo with Bob Valentine as the 2014 BSFHG comes to a close.  We look forward to next year’s event!
