The Christmas Revels:
A Scottish Highlands Celebration of the Winter Solstice
Travel with Revels North to the remote Scottish Highlands, where families will gather for a ceilidh—a celebration with singing, dancing, and all manner of diversion, including the telling of a story, “The Ballad of Tam Lin.” An eldritch tale... full of adventure, enchantment, and the battle between dark and light... Margaret ventures into an ancient wood now said to be home to the mercurial Fair Folk. There she meets Tam Lin, a knight imprisoned by the Elfin Queen. Will Margaret dare to free Tam Lin from the Queen’s control and finally reclaim her family’s land? Featured guest artists include world-class Highland piper Iain MacHarg of the Vermont Institute of Celtic Arts; title-winning Scottish fiddler Katie McNally; renowned Gaelic harper Dominique Dodge; and acclaimed accordionist Jeremiah McLane, performing together as Ceòl nan Gàidheal; and a special appearance by nationally-celebrated Scottish highland dancer Joshua Haiman. With an original script created by acclaimed author Susan Cooper and Associate Music Director Will Rowan.
