Nashua High School South to arrange Scottish arts and music fest April

With dancing, crafts, traditional music, the Scottish Festival is all set to take place on 11th April, Saturday, at Nashua High School South. The main organizer of the festival Lezlie Webster said that they expect fifteen pipe bands and more than hundred solo pipers and drummers. Also a highland dance competition in the morning.

Meanwhile, the toe-tapping, hand-clapping, sounds of Appalachian Celtic Consort got the audience into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit earlier on Tuesday at Collis Center Bowman Auditorium, at the Ohio University Southern.

As part of Ohio University Southern Community Concer, Appalachian Celtic Consort executed their conventional Scottish and Irish music with a local twist of Irish-Scotch immigrants which settled in Appalachia hills. Formed in 1998 originally, the band is comprised of local music artists Dewey Sanderson, Dave Gladkosky, Mark Watson, Mark Nelson and Sheila McEntee.

The band’s next performance will be on 2nd March 22, Sunday, at Baptist Temple Church in Charleston. The next performance will be at the Community Concert Series will be at the OUS Community Band on Monday, at 7:30 pm, on 13th April. All concerts are free to public.
