Extraordinary Celtic Music!

Celtic music at the Colorado Scottish Festival features noted Celtic fiddler Loretta Thompson.

Loretta Thompson

Loretta’s dynamic fiddling and radiant voice have electrified audiences for years at the Festival.  Playing fiddle, guitar, whistle and more, Loretta plays music from her Scottish, Irish and American heritage.  She has been an instructor at the Rocky Mountain Fiddle Congress since its inception in 1999.  You won’t want to miss Loretta on the Concert Stage on The Mall.

Stay tuned to learn about other Celtic musicians who will be playing with Loretta.  


Irish Dance!

Sharing the Concert Stage with Celtic musicians will be dancers from the Bennett School of Irish Dance.  Located at the Friendship Irish Dance Center in Denver, the Bennett School was formed in 1988 by Molly Bennett, TCRG, her sister Libby Skipper, and her husband Bill Bennett.

Enjoy the high energy and flying feet of members of the Irish dance team as they express their love of their heritage at the Colorado Scottish Festival!
