May 26th~The Caledonian Orchestra of Nova Scotia performs at the Grace. 3:00 P.M. Tickets:  $15  The Caledonian Orchestra of Nova Scotia was formed in 1993 and has evolved into a performance oriented group of musicians dedicated to the promotion of traditional  Scottish music.   Our  Scottish Orchestra has a sound  distinctive  to the culture of Scotland following the musical compositions and style of William Marshall, Neil Gow,      J. Scott Skinner and other composers of this time.  The harmonies, timing and tempo all reflect a style of music, unique to a country where history was determined not only by events, but through a developed awareness  of dance and song.  Scottish music is unique and strives to capture the essence of its people and culture.   The type of tunes we play and the use of instruments such as accordions and flutes  help to establish and promote the true “Scottish Fiddle Orchestra Sound”. One of the many features in the Caledonia Orchestra Show is the amazing fiddler/dancer duo performed by Maritime Marionettes. Strings are the popular theme, as the string puppets spring to life with the music of fiddler Amelia Parker and guitarist Skip Holmes.
