Can you remember the first time you heard bagpipes being played? The piercing melodic sounds are both eerie and enchanting at the same time. It is music that is deep rooted in Scottish tradition, and perhaps this isn’t something you hear a lot in Arkansas. But since 1979, the small town of Batesville has been celebrating the music as well as the rich Celtic culture by hosting the most authentic Scottish festival in America. So, grab your kilts and let’s attend this fall festival in Arkansas and celebrate all the wonderful traditions of Scottish culture.
