A very interesting informative and fun show. We learned about fiddling, piping, drumming and dancing. The only small glitch was that same front seats were reserved but not well labeled and some guests were relocated by ushers.

We were hoping for more than just a single display case. While this bagpipe was truly an important piece of history, we were interested to learn more about the pipes as a whole.

We thoroughly enjoyed the excellent musicians, dancers and singers who put on a high-energy show that included a great variety of music, dance and instrumentation. Professional and extraordinarily entertaining. The only very minor negative, seating could be more comfortable.

I got the info on the website. I would call them to confirm though as they changed the time on us (which worked to our favour) but hate to miss out. I bet fall is less frequent.

Ditto the last response! We went to a mini concert which gave us a nice taste of the music and dance as well as an explanation of the bagpipe and drum.
