Under the Lothian Sky: An Evening with Brian McNeill

Join Brian McNeill as he celebrates the 40th year of a career that has established him as one of the most acclaimed forces in Scottish music.

There are an estimated 35 million Americans who can claim Scottish or Scots-Irish heritage. Folk music truly has no boundaries as it follows the migration patterns of humans. As they traveled, immigrant groups carried their musical traditions with them. These musical traditions included ceremonial music, folk music, work songs, dance music, instrumental music, and popular songs as well as distinctive forms of musical instrumentation.
