Tartans at Twilight

Jul 17, 2018 | Events

One of the great joys of summer is listening to live music under the stars… like the event the Glengarry Pioneer Museum will be hosting on Thursday evening, July 26th starting at 7:00 PM. Music lovers are in for a real treat as AGINCOURT, a group from Montreal, explores how Celtic music evolved in Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Quebec. In the process, they will delight the audience with rousing jigs and reels, evocative airs and traditional folk songs.

AGINCOURT features performers and instruments not always heard in Glengarry, including: Joanne St. Laurent on Celtic harp and whistle; Alan Jones on bellows-blown bagpipes, whistle, stringed instruments and vocals; Michel Dubeau on transverse flute, whistle and backup vocals; and Eloi Amesse on fiddle and backup vocals.

Aptly named “Tartans at Twilight,” the event is the latest in the Glengarry Pioneer Museum’s series of popular outdoor performances. As in the past, the concert will be held on the grounds of the museum, or under the shelter of the Williams Pavilion in the case of rain. While there’s no formal admission, the museum is counting on the audience’s generosity. Volunteers will pass around a hat at intermission time. The suggested donation is $15 per person.

Concert seating is strictly on a BYOC basis (Bring Your Own Chair)… or a picnic blanket. People are also encouraged bring a picnic supper and dine al fresco before the concert.

For those who have never been to the museum in Dunvegan, it’s located at the intersection of County Roads 24 and 30. For complete directions, please visit their web site: GlengarryPioneerMuseum.ca
