The College of Piping

 While passing through the town of Summerside, we came upon the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts.

                                 We decided to stay for their evening performance.

 Since it started in 1990, students from all over the world have come here to learn traditional Celtic arts that have been passed down from generation to generation. 

This is the only year-round institution of its kind in North America and has developed a reputation as an international school of excellence in--

                                                   -- Highland bagpiping--

                                                 --Scottish-style drumming--

                                                       --Highland dancing--

                                                 --and Island step dancing.

  This was a high-energy, fast-paced show blending both Celtic music and dance and was very well done.  It reminded us of River Dance that we saw several years ago.
