Pipes on the Parkway

noon - 4 p.m.
Historic Orchard at Altapass

Free admission. Come celebrate the Scots-Irish heritage in Western North Carolina at the Orchard's second annual event. Music will surround the kiosk of our Scots-Irish history that details the "Great Wagon Trail" of the 1700s. There will be dancing and perhaps a special treat or two. Beginning at noon, the swallows will have to swoop around the exuberant notes rising from the pavilion of bagpipes, drums, brass in music born "across the pond" with Charlotte's Queen City Pipes and Drums, mountain's Blue Ridge Brass, Pipes and Drums and the lyrical Celtic melodies of Thistle Dew.
