Summer Kilt Night with Albannach

TICKETS HERE

The Barn of Harpers Ferry welcomes back Scotland's Warrior pipes and drums for the 2nd Annual summer kilt night.
Albannach is Scots-Gaelic for “Scottish” or “Scotsman”. That’s exactly what they are. Albannach is comprised of two Scotsmen and one Scottish lass, all born and bred in Scotland! Our fourth and newest member is an American born Scot, but they won’t hold it against him. Their main purpose in life is to share the intriguing culture, history and heritage with you by means of their music.
Albannach is not just another Scottish ‘Pipes & Drums’ band, their primal drumming and precise piping stirs the soul of anyone who hears them – young and old! With a champion piper, the unique sounds and talents of a didgeridoo player, and the tribal style bass drumming – the music isn’t for the faint of heart! It’s aggressive, like a Celtic punch to the face!

Estonian Folk Orchestra Wana Wõromaa Wunkorkestri

This multi-generational folk orchestra is coming all the way from Estonia and will be playing at the Barn!

We'll let them describe themselves: We all live in Vana-Võromaa (old historical Võromaa in South-East Estonia), where the local dialect and culture are still strong and very much alive. Vana-Võromaa is a cultural district in a green, hilly region with many lakes. Even though it isn’t densely populated, every village has its own character and many folk tunes’ names refer to the villages they originate from. As every region in Estonia, it has a long tradition of dancing, music and singing and this cultural heritage lives on in both archives and living traditions.

Most members of WWW live in their farm houses in the countryside. Our youngest member is only 7 years old and there is no age limit for those who want to play Vana-Võromaa music. The leaders of this mixed age folk music group, Kadri Laube, Kadri Lepasson and Ott Kaasik, are well-known and appreciated folk musicians.

Every week the orchestra members get individual lessons from their teachers and then meet once a month to have a very intensive all-day-long rehearsal with the whole orchestra.
