The church is beautifully situated on the south end of downtown South Berwick at 150 Main Street. It is easily accessible and the concert is scheduled to be affordable and convenient for seniors and students, as well as the general public. Parking is available nearby and the venue is handicapped accessible. First Parish Federated Church, www.fpfc.org , has long been a community meeting place, and a venue for community based events, music and programs.
The type of music to be heard will include rollicking reels from Cape Breton, traditional strathspeys and other powerful fiddle tunes backed by a percussive cello accompaniment. The highland pipes will command your attention with pipe marches and sooth your mind with the gentle pibroch. The harp, the oldest Scottish instrument, will astonish the listener with its tonal clarity and melodic charm enhanced with rhythmic dynamics.
The program is being held to benefit the three historical societies so that they may continue to educate, promote historical ties, and celebrate the musical culture of Scotland.
