Music in the Time of Corona

Updated: Jan 19, 2021

As part of our monthly Dames and Drams series, The Scottish American Women’s Society of DC (SAWS) hosted a concert featuring champion fiddler Seán Heely. Half way through, he was joined by Colin McGlynn. Together they are known as the Glencoe Lads. It was a fun and rousing concert featuring the Scottish musical tradition. Seán answered audience questions about Scottish music and even taught a little Scots Gaelic so the audience could sing along.
