Scottish Fiddler Entertains Crowd at the West Vancouver Museum!

On Wednesday, August 2nd, Angus MacKinnon entertained a sellout crowd in the museum garden with the sounds of traditional Scottish fiddle music. There was a lot of excitement about this event, and the audience could be heard humming, singing, and even dancing to the music.

Mr. MacKinnon's performance was part of our Tea & Tour program running throughout the summer here at the museum. Museum staff member Darren Penner started the event with a tour of the current museum exhibit, Living on the Edge: West Vancouver Modernist Homes 1940-1970. After the tour participants moved to the museum garden to enjoy the sounds of the Scottish fiddle, as well as refreshments supplied by Coco Loco. The sticky buns they supplied were so good that we could barely keep up with demand!

We at the West Vancouver Museum would like to extend our deepest thanks to Mr. MacKinnon for donating his time to play for us. The audience loved it and the event was a great success! Thanks also to Coco Loco for supplying the refreshments, and the volunteers and staff who helped out with setup, service, and take down - we couldn't have done it without you!
