As part of the celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of Scotland House Brussels, we are delighted to invite you to our St Andrew’s Ceilidh in honour of Scotland's patron saint. St Andrew's Day is a celebration of Scotland as a diverse, innovative and welcoming nation with a rich heritage, warm heart and inclusive spirit.
We are hosting a traditional Scottish party on the Schuman Roundabout filled with live music and dancing. Don’t worry if you don’t know the steps, there will be a caller to provide some guidance and the dances are easy for new comers to join in! There will also be food and drink for purchase.
This is the opening of the Schuman Christmas Market which will feature a series of events over the course of the week.
We are delighted to welcome Aves o' May through Live Music Now Scotland, who will be performing at the Ceilidh.
The Ceilidh is a public event open to everyone.
Live Music Now Scotland was founded by legendary violinist Yehudi Menuhin in the 1970s to bring the experience of live music to people throughout communities, particularly those who otherwise would not have access to concerts, such as hospitals, nursing homes, etc.. Live Music Now also gives invaluable performing and training opportunities to outstanding emerging artists in several countries throughout Europe and worldwide.
Hailing from the Highlands and Aberdeenshire, Beccy Amphlett (fiddle) and Lucie Hendry (Scottish harp) met while studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. After graduating in 2018, they formed Aves o’May. The duo began through their shared desire to bring music to communities across the country who often do not get the opportunity to experience live folk music. Their creative approach to arranging music brings new light to Scottish songs and melodies with sensitivity and elegance, blending their varied musical backgrounds.
