Sit back and enjoy the Scottish Jacobite experience---Bonnie Prince Charlie and a' that---and hear the spirited songs and history which help to illustrate the period of the exiled Stuarts and the attempts by the loyal Highlanders to help them regain their throne. After the 1745 Jacobite Rising, the last serious attempt of a Stuart restoration, life in the Highlands changed, and changed utterly---the landscape created by the war on all things Highland is still visible to this very day. It is a story that has to be told. I hope to see you there! Info: pgarvin@cecilcountylibrary.org
