Event Details

With the health of our community in mind in light of the rising Covid-19 cases, this concert will be offered virtually.

Vermont’s leaders in Scottish music have combined forces to create a new supergroup, Stravaigin. We have united our deep roots in the Highland and Hebridean traditions to create an innovative sound based very firmly in the music of our ancestors. Iain MacHarg has been leading Vermont’s Scottish music scene for the last 20 years. He is the director of the Vermont Institute of Celtic Arts, Catamount Pipe Band, and a member of Prydein. Dan Houghton is a talented piper, accompanist, and a member of Cantrip, one of New England’s most popular folk groups. Rachel Clemente is a former US National Scottish Harp Champion, and graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Hazen Metro is a member of Prydein, Catamount Pipe Band, and a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Joanne Garton is a fiddler, teacher, and step dancer from Montpelier. Ian Gauthier and John Nowak are both long standing members of Catamount Pipe Band. Stravaigin brings extremely exciting music to audiences everywhere who love traditional music!
