The band this year was led by New Zealand’s Sharlene Penman on piano!! We were fortunate that her annual visit to the U.S. coincided with Kilts & Ghillies! Joining her were fiddlers Jenny Evans and Amy Beshara, both are local artists.

Peter Price and Sandra Bethray  worked on devising the 2019 program with frequent emails to Sharlene for suggestions. At least two popular New Zealand dances were included. The program is listed on the reverse of the Registration flyer.
