2013: NY Brogue at the South Street Seaport

NY Brogue, featuring the 2007 Glenfiddich Scottish Fiddle Champion Calum Pasqua, performs at “Tartan Day at the South Street Seaport.” Held on March 30, 2013, the event officially launched the 2013 NY Tartan Week celebrations. Produced by the Clan Currie Society and sponsored in part by the National Trust for Scotland Foundation – USA and NY Water Taxi, the 2013 program marked the 12th annual observance of Tartan Day by Clan Currie. In addition to Pasqua, performers included the Rampant Lion Pipe Band, the NYC Harp Orchestra, John the Kilted Juggler, and the NY Celtic Dancers. The Seaport reported that the Tartan Day crowd was the largest at the Seaport since Hurricane Sandy hit on October 29, 2012. Official attendance was estimated at over 5700. The Clan Currie Society is a founding member of the NY Tartan Week Alliance.
