Scottish Music Fuels Fundraiser for Fort Dobbs


Recalling the Scots-Irish settlers in the region, a special fundraising concert featuring the Scottish fiddle/cello duo of Tim MacDonald and Jeremy Ward is being presented by the Friends of Fort Dobbs State Historic Site. The Feb. 7, 6:30 p.m. concert at Southern Distilling, north of Statesville, celebrates the release of the duo’s new album, “The Wilds,” and also raises funds for Fort Dobbs.

While enjoying the foot-stomping 18th century tunes, revelers will be able to sample several of the award-winning bourbons produced at the Southern Distilling distillery.

Pre-purchase is required for the limited number of available tickets. The $25 ticket includes the cost of a bourbon tasting. Contact Fort Dobbs at (704) 873-5882 or to reserve a space.
