Bergen Scottish Society

Autumn Ceilidh

• Autumn Ceilidh
Saturday Nov. 8th, Chagall 

The big event on the Society's calendar in the second half of the year is the annual Autumn Ceilidh.  Chagall bar was well-received as the venue, with its many advantages; it's located in the city center, has a great dance floor and very good acoustics. 

Musical direction was given by Crowded Croft, who were invited back this year after a few year's haitus, to lead us in the dancing of the old favourites, like Dashing White Sargeant, the Canadian Barn Dance and Gay Gordons.  It was hard to sit down on the sidelines, as so fun was being had out on the dance floor. 

As usual, Bergen Pipes & Drums also performed a few tunes, but there was an added treat of the sounds and talents of Anne Sofie Valdal who played various instruments and danced (not at the same time). And in true ceilidh fashion, an impromptu accapella rendition of "Flower of Scotland", sung by guest Will Wilson, stirred the crowd.
