The Scottish Tattoo - The double sell-out show of 2006
"Celebrate the Tartan"
The emotional story of the Highlanders emigration to USA & Canada
We celebrated Tartan Day in April with our new show for 2006. The story of the Highlanders emigration is an emotional one. Their exploits in both USA and Canada, literally shaped those nations. The reasons for emigration were often painful, however, through the achievements of those early military and economic migrants, the culture of the Highlands has been preserved and is celebrated by people proud to call themselves North American Scottish Highlanders. We salute you all.
Such was the overwhelming response to "Celebrate the Tartan" in a sold out Salisbury City Hall, that with a few variations, the show made it's debut in Ferneham Hall, Fareham on Sunday 17th September at 7pm. Another sell out audience and another spectacular show.
