DANDRIDGE, Tenn. – The only Scots-Irish Music Festival in the United States is set for Saturday, September 28, in downtown Dandridge, organizers said.

The music festival will honor the town’s earliest settlers, dating back to 1783.

The old-time Main Street Music Festival will be held on the shores of Douglas Lake.
The concert and all events are provided free of charge.
The events will start at 8:30 a.m. with bagpipe and snare drum competitions.

At 10:00 a.m., the street festival will open with vendors selling Scottish and Irish merchandise and food.

There will be Highland athletic demonstrations, dance demonstrations, a children’s play area, a dog parade and many clans with booths explaining their origins and history.

Starting at noon, there will be a dual pipe bands parade and the start of continuous stage entertainment, this year featuring the Canadian group Mudmen.

At 6:30 p.m., the evening concert will feature Scottish, Irish and Appalachian Celtic performers, including Mudmen, Highland Reign, the Knoxville Pipes and Drums, The Celtic Martins, Champion Highland Dancer Claire Macmillan and Champion Irish Step Dancer Katie Carver.

The evening ends with the Lone Piper playing bagpipes at the top of the town dike.

“Recently named ‘#1 Best Small Town on the Water,’ Dandridge is the perfect venue to host THE premier heritage event in East Tennessee,” said Tina Murrow, Director of Dandridge’s Main Street Program, host of the Festival.

“Locals and tourists look forward to attending this family-friendly festival each year, and we absolutely love bringing new and exciting Scots-Irish performers, vendors and demonstrations.”

Festival Entertainment Chairman Mark Murray said, “Pipe bands will again be featured performers, The City of Chattanooga Pipe Band and The Knoxville Pipes and Drums will play, and our Main Stage will always showcases a variety of Celtic music.”
