The Currie Cultural Tent is a special feature of the Scotland County Highland Games sponsored by The Learned Kindred of Currie - Commander, Robert Currie. The family of Currie is historically associated with the bardic traditions of the great Lords of the Isles. The Currie Cultural Tent features intimate opportunities to hear and learn about the traditions of the sometimes less well-known Scottish musical traditions of the Fiddle, the Harp (Scottish clarsach), and the Gaelic Language. Come learn about the language of the Scottish Highlands (as well as the language used by Scots here in North Carolina!) Failte (y’all come)!
• Fiddler: Jamie Laval
• Harpists: Julie Gorka, Mike Conners
Traditional musicians are invited to join the performers for an informal Scottish/Celtic “jam session” at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. Bring your fiddle, guitar, whistle, or other Celtic or traditional instrument to join in the musical fun!
