Did you know that New Hampshire has it’s own Scottish Music society? Founded in 1988, the Strathspey & Reel Society of New Hampshire has promoted Scottish culture through the playing of traditional Scottish music. With over 100 members, the group gathers monthly to play music and learn about the rich heritage of the musical traditions of Scotland.
We are very pleased that a select contingent of this organization will be performing an afternoon concert of Scottish music in Bass Hall. Fiddles, woodwinds, accordion, guitars and other instruments make up the orchestra (we will forego the Highland pipes for this event, as they would be a bit much for Bass Hall). We’ll hear some classic Scottish tunes, as well as some more recently composed tunes in the Scottish genre, and of course some tunes from Cape Breton as well, where the Scottish music tradition has a life of its own.
And what could be more appropriate for Peterborough, whose early population was heavily represented by Scottish settlers. Come join us for a delightful musical experience.
Supplement this afternoon of entertainment with brunch before, or dinner after, the show. Our friends at Waterhouse Restaurant in Depot Square are generously donating 10% of this day’s proceeds to the Peterborough Historical Society. Call today for your reservation: 603-924-4001.
