Pre-Performance Lecture: Basics in Scottish Dance

Saturday, November 2, 2013 · 7-7:45 pm

Hailing from North Uist in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, Scottish Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis is one of the Western Isles’ true contemporary treasures. A multi-instrumentalist who has been singing, piping and dancing since she was a child, she is a proud standard bearer for Gaelic music and culture. She is perhaps most widely known for her performance of two original songs, “Touch the Sky” and “Into the Open Air” for the Academy Award-winning Disney Pixar film Brave. She is joined on stage by a three-piece band on fiddle, guitar, bouzouki and flutes.

“...Elegant, evocative, unerringly classy.”
