Entertainment

Join us in our entertainment hall this year and see crowd favorites the Wicked Tinkers and Men of Worth back by popular demand. 

We are proud to present The Fiddle Preacher and the Dame of Drones!

The main stage on Saturday and Sunday will be in the Promontory Building.

Wicked Tinkers

The Wicked Tinkers aim to create a sound that is both “ancient and hauntingly familiar” with use of bagpipes, tribal drums, didgeridoos, and a Bronze-Age Irish horn paired with a modern, rock-and-roll energy; their music will transport you back in time and get an audience off their feet with a raw, primal, and exciting sound.

Men of Worth

Enjoy the wit and prowess of Donnie Macdonald and James Keigher. Their show is a unique combination of humor, exciting tunes, and soulful, heartfelt ballads. While both sing in English, Donnie also sings in his first language, Scots Gaelic and James in Irish Gaelic. Donnie comes from the Isle of Lewis in Scotland while James comes from County Mayo in Ireland.

The Fiddle Preacher
and
The Dame of Drones

The fire-weilding “Dame of Drones” piper met high octane fiddler, Bronwen Beecher, “The Fiddle Preacher” through the popular international band, Celtica Nova in 2021. The two high energy performers both range from traditional to hard rock. For the first time they are joining forces as a duo. Thanks to the Utah Scottish Festival and Highland Games for the idea to create this dynamic duo!
