Imagine—almost years ago—taking your spouse and children away from your homeland, with just the clothes on your back and not much else and spending up to 8 weeks on a ship only to arrive on an little island—an island you knew absolutely nothing about. Imagine arriving on those shores in the bleak autumn, having to clear land, cut wood, build a home with crude tools and fashion an existence that ensured your growing family would survive the winter in this unfamiliar climate. Imagine eventually having to choose between a prosperous future and maintaining your precious culture. This is Highland Storm—an evening of Celtic music and dance that will entertain audiences with displays of the Highland and step dancing and sounds of the pipes and drums. Combining the melodies of traditional songs and the fire of the fiddle, performances offer an authentic Highland experience. Highland Storm opens on July 8 and plays on select dates with two matinees until August 16, on stage in the new theatre, The Celtic Performing Arts Centre.
