Annual Scottish Highland Gathering: Brigadoon

Annual Scottish Highland Gathering: Brigadoon

Australia’s premier Scottish Gathering – Brigadoon – will again weave its magic on April 17 2010, at Bundanoon in the Southern Highlands of NSW.

Be prepared to have your blood stirred and spine tingled as the mist rolls back to the skirl of bagpipes and the village becomes Brigadoon for the day.

This year, Highlander, one of the finest Scottish Celtic Rock Bands in the world, is bringing its unique sound to the gathering. This five piece group has a unique sound which has been wowing audiences of all ages with their electrifying high-energy music.

The powerful sound of the bagpipes, matched with dynamic sound of the fiddle, and electric and acoustic guitars, compliment the powerhouse bass grooves, pulsating percussion, and vocal harmonies.

Highlander, while keeping traditional music in its repertoire, has also added its own flavour to  the reels, jigs, and songs of Scotland. However, they are most outstanding when they perform their original compositions which are rich in melody and message.

Highlander has appeared at events such as Scotland in Concert (Jakarta Indonesia),  Tamworth Country Music Festival, The Australian Celtic Festival, Kilmore Celtic Festival, Toukley Gathering of the Clans, Nelson Bay Clans on the Coast,  and many clubs, hotels, private and corporate functions. They always provide a show that is dynamic and entertaining.

It is impossible not to be caught up in the energy Highlander brings to every show. They are an act guaranteed to have audiences dancing in the oval aisles!!
