Sunday, July 22nd proved to be a very, very busy day for 22 visitors from Scotland. It was a great day that started with an informal concert at the Everett Farmer’s Market, then a concert to a standing room only crowd at the Everett Public Library, then after dinner at Scuttlebutt Brewery, one more jam in the lobby next door. New friends were quickly made with this group of talented musicians that fiddled, whistled, sang, and danced! Northwest Scottish Fiddlers were delighted to have hosted such a wonderful group!
As Director of Music for the Northwest Scottish Fiddlers, Calum MacKinnon must certainly feel proud of the youth in this organization. His love of Scottish fiddle music and his passion for teaching has an affect on young and older musicians so much so that they feel confident to perform and display their musical skills in front of the general public.
Three of the many teens in this group performed at the Kirkland Performance Center, WA from March 8 through 10th. Christina Smith, Vienna Scheyer and Niki Love gave a crowd pleasing performance as special guests at the Keith Highlanders Pipe Band concert. They were accompanied by accomplished pianist, Guinevere Saenger. The four of them delighted the audience.
