Put on your kilt and get ready for bagpipes.
The 7th annual Celtic music and arts festival Piping on the Green will be held at The Celtic Cup Coffee House in Tullahoma this Saturday, April 6.
The opening ceremony begins at 9 a.m. with events lasting until 6 p.m. Piping on the Green is a family-friendly celebration with free admission.
The Highland Rim Scottish Society is sponsoring the event, which offers authentic music, arts, crafts, dancing, pipers and comedy. Celtic-style food and beverages will be available. Lawn chairs are recommended for comfort to best enjoy the greenery, music and arts.
Educational experiences such as workshops, demonstrations and sharing Celtic knowledge are available.
Highland Rim Scottish Society president Denise Smith says, “We welcome everyone to come out and enjoy the festival. Our mission is to educate the community about Scottish-American heritage. We hold this event to inform the public of that heritage while also having a good time.”
Entertainment will include the Secret Commonwealth, Pay the Reckoning Trio, Black Market Haggis, the Nashville Scottish Dancers and Triquetra Troupe performing comedy and Irish step-dancing.
Scotland Rising will be returning as the headliner by popular demand.
The day of the festival falls on National Tartan Day, which is the day of celebration of Scottish heritage and the achievements of Americans of Scottish descent, making this year’s Piping on the Green a piping hot occasion.
