Thursdays will transport the audience into Hillsborough Bay, PEI around 250 years ago, as the Annabella, the Edinburgh and the Falmouth arrive having carried families from their homeland to a new land with little more than the clothes on their backs. Imagine arriving on these shores in the bleak autumn, having to clear land, cut wood and build a home in order to survive the unforgiving winters of PEI. The story of the Scots arriving on PEI will be performed by The College of Piping’s instructors and students and Highland Storm – directed by Peter Gallant, has been revamped for the 2021 season. An exhilarating evening of Celtic music and dance that will captivate the audience with stunning displays of the Highland and step dancers and breathtaking sounds from the pipes and drums. Combine that with the haunting melodies of beautiful traditional songs and the consuming fire of the fiddle, this will be a moving authentic experience. Prepare to sit tight and hold on…there’s a Storm coming!
