Skerryvore travelled many miles just to share their talent with BYU-Idaho on Friday Oct. 19 in the John W. Hart Auditorium. Students stomped their feet and clapped their hands to the beat of bagpipes played by Martin Gillespie. BYU-Idaho students have been looking forward to this event since August.
Natasha Walters, a Junior studying Public Health, came to their performance last year and loved it. She is part-Irish and grew up going to Scottish festivals with her family. Walters said she came to “reconnect with [her] culture and enjoy clean, awesome, fantastic music and atmosphere.”
“Five seconds into their third song I was so elated, because it was the literally the very music that I grew up listening to… Having a chance to listen to one’s heritage live is a blessing, and I am so grateful to Skerryvore for coming to BYU-I to share their talents and their country’s music.” said Walters after listening to their performance.
