Scottish music featured at CW's DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum
"Scotland Forever,” a program of traditional Scottish dance music and songs, will be performed at 4 p.m. Nov. 20 at Colonial Williamsburg’s DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum. The concert is being held in conjunction with the exhibition, “At the Edge of the World: Mapping Scotland,” which is on view in the Wallace Museum through Dec. 1. The concert is included in museum admission.
Three top recording artists and musicians have joined together for the program. John Turner, a performer at Colonial Williamsburg for more than 30 years, is a 10-time Scottish National Fiddling Champion and director of the Jink and Diddle School of Scottish Fiddling. Cliff Williams, who also has played at the foundation for more than 25 years, is an operatic baritone, guitarist and founding member of the Virginia Company, an 18th-century musical group. Cassie Smith-Christmas, who placed fifth in the U.S. National Junior Scottish Fiddling Championships at the age of 15, has performed with a number of Celtic groups.
