The Scottish American Society of Dunedin proudly presents Seven Nations live in concert at our Scottish Cultural Center.

The Scottish American Society of Dunedin is proud to present Seven Nations live in concert for a very special end of season Haggis Celtic Concert at our Scottish Cultural Center. This concert will be in support of the Repurpose Center and Reuse Store of Gainesville. This non-profit is dedicated to a more sustainable future by diverting materials from landfills for art, education and construction projects via their thrift and reuse center and their architectural salvage yard. They are seeking $200,00 in donations to buy an additional building, tripling their capacity. Donations can be made through their website: www.repurposeproject.org or by contacting donations@repurposeproject.org or 352-363-8902.

Seven Nations will offer a fantastic evening of songs, stories and tunes. The original Seven Nations lineup of drums, guitars and bass made room for bagpipes and fiddle to develop a unique Celtic sound and driving, original songs, honed by 20 years of touring and more than a million miles on the road. Their rollicking style is blended with a charismatic, passionate stage presence creating an unforgettable live experience. Come to our concert, have a great time and learn more about the Repurpose Project and the Scottish American Society of Dunedin

Equally at home in front of 40,000 cheering fans at an international festival, with the widely recognized, Grammy award winning, symphony orchestras, or with 300 fans in a small Midwest club, SEVEN NATIONS has created a truly hybrid sound and transient live show. The depth and complexity of SEVEN NATIONS' music is astounding, each listen reveals a deeper layer of intricacy that has been embraced by an ever growing audience. "We are lucky," says McLeod, lead singer/songwriter and founding member of the band, "because we come from two unique cultures. We love American pop and rock and roll, but we also love our Celtic roots. We want to touch everybody with our music," he continues, "and so far, we have been very, very fortunate."
