Scottish Christmas Walk
Ready, Set, March! In a parade that is! It is that time of year again when the City of Alexandria fills with the sound of the pipes and the streets overflow with the exhilaration of thousands of men (and women) in kilts. March with Celtic Society of Southern Maryland on December 7th, 2013 in the 43rd annual Scottish Christmas Walk, sponsored by the Campagna Center. Not only do we have the opportunity to reach out to Celtic enthusiasts throughout the region and let them know about our wonderful events (such as the Southern Maryland Celtic Festival and Highland Games, 26 April, 2014), we also have a lot of fun, and maybe a little post parade get-together. The Scottish Walk happens rain, shine, snow, sleet, wind, heat or cold. The more people we have the more people we can reach. Let’s let Alexandria know that Southern Maryland Is There! Parade line up starts at 10:00 and will be posted by the Campagna Center a few days before the parade. If you plan to participate email me so we can contact you with any last minute information.
Winter Celtic Music Festival
The Celtic Society of Southern Maryland presents the Winter Celtic Music Festival with The Panache Quartet in collaboration with St. Mary’s Ryken High School’s Student Organization For the Interest in the Arts (SOFIA) at Romauld Hall, Leonardtown, MD, on Saturday, January 4, 2014. Panache Quartet is comprised of Cape Breton fiddler Andrea Beaton, Franco-American fiddler Donna Hébert, Southern style fiddler Jane Rothfield and Québecois fiddler Véronique Plasse. What happens when you put these fierce musicians together? Lively reels, dancing jigs, soulful waltzes and airs, great playing and great singing! Listening to Panache is like watching art being made at the moment of inspiration! These ladies spark off of one another, with arrangements, countermelodies, harmonies, rhythms, and musical improvisation. The result is something NEW and EXCITING and FUN!! These fine professional musicians will offer workshops in the afternoon from 1-3pm and concert at 7:30pm. Tickets $30 at the door; advance sale discounts are now available online at TicketLeap! For more information regarding the Panache Quartet, visit Panache Quartet.
