This Summer, Shot of Scotch NYC has the unique privilege of performing at the Fife & Drum Taptoe Concert Series held in the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton, NJ. Last night four of our dancers, Anna Fitzgerald, Annelise MacLeod, Emily Ritter and Marjorie Stewart performed a mixture of traditional Highland and National dances for a very enthusiastic crowd!
A Taptoe is similar to the Tattoo style of military performance. Traditionally called a "doe den tap toe" Danish for "turn off the tap", a signal for bartenders to stop serving troops and send them back to the barracks! In the past the troops would march back to the barracks to the sound of drums. Naturally over the years this drum performance became more elaborate until we developed our modern day Taptoe. The Fife & Drum Taptoe will also be featuring Scottish musicians and fife and drum performances, set in the background of an 18th century military barracks!
If you missed last nights performance then mark your calendars for our upcoming show on Friday August 7th at 7pm. We will be mixing up the set list this time so even if you saw our first show come on down for another great performance! This time we will be joined on stage with dancers Elena Giacoletti, Katherine Giacoletti, and newest addition to Shot of Scotch, Trisha Bacon! We hope to see you at the show!
