The CHICAGO SCOTS is proud to host the Bach and Beethoven Ensemble (BBE) here at the Scottish Home and we invite you to join them for an evening of Scottish music, food, poetry, and culture. The BBE is preparing for an historic North American performance of The Gentle Shepherd, Scotland's first opera based entirely on Scottish folk and fiddle music, and you don't want to miss out!

What can you Expect?

  • Food & Drinks
  • A toast to all "the laddies and lassies"
  • The address and sharing of the haggis
  • Poetry by Scotland's greatest poets
  • Traditional ceilidh ("key-lee") dance

The evening will feature some of Chicago's top musicians performing the folk and fiddle music of Scotland. Some of the music will come from the BBE's production of The Gentle Shepherd, which will be the first time the show will be produced this side of the Atlantic Ocean since 1798.
