As well as traditional music there will also be modern rock and pop blended into the evening.  This will also be reflected in the choreographies with Scottish Highland dancers and Irish step dancers creating some modern routines.

The idea grew and was expanded by Beerten Events who started the “Music Show Scotland” event.   This event has now grown to become the largest Scottish indoor show in the World. It is that large that there are ten trucks required to transport the life-sized castle, consisting tonnes of steel and wood, including the complete light and sound equipment.
