St. Andrew’s Day Family Ceilidh & Pipers Club Atlantic Launch

Join us for a St. Andrew's Day Family Ceilidh featuring Ben Miller and Anita MacDonald.

Combining the fiery edge of the Scottish Border pipes with the rich sounds of the Cape Breton fiddle, Ben and Anita merge traditional influences from Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island, as well as the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. This fresh and talented duo pairs driving dance-tunes with expressive Gaelic airs and songs, bringing their listeners a powerful combination of passion and grace.

Don’t miss the launch of the new Pipers Club Atlantic with special announcements about upcoming dates, performers, and sponsors.

There will also be performances by Dartmouth & District Pipe Band. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the band.

Dartmouth & District Pipe Band is participating in Clean Nova Scotia’s Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up on Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, at the Dartmouth Commons.

Throughout the summer months the band practices for competitions, parades and performances at the Dartmouth Commons, so to kick off the season they are volunteering to clean up the space for themselves and others to enjoy.

"We really wanted to get out into our community and do something a little different to kick off this year’s pipe band season," says event coordinator Heather Keddy.

"Choosing the Dartmouth Commons as our clean up location was obvious since we’ve been practicing there for the last few summers. We wanted to give something back to this beautiful community space."

They will be joining thousands of other Nova Scotians in making our province a little more beautiful this April, which is Earth Month.

The band welcomes players, friends, fans, and community members to join them in the clean up.

About the Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-UpThe Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up is Nova Scotia’s primary volunteer-driven community cleanup program, facilitating year-round, cleanups across the province. For the past 25 years, Clean Nova Scotia is proud to provides supplies and support to participants (individuals, groups, businesses, schools), to carry out community-based cleanups.
