Kanuga Conference and Retreat Center

 —  —

Kanuga Conference and Retreat Center, 471 Kanuga Chapel Drive, Hendersonville

This will be a very special evening on All Soul's Eve, honoring lost friends and loved ones. StrathSpan will play a one hour set filled with lovely, contemplative airs and waltzes, and joyous, uplifting music. Please see the poster below describing the whole evening, which includes an optional dinner. If you've not been to Kanuga before, it is a special place situated on 1,400 pristine acres in the Blue Ridge mountains where you can re-connect with nature. The concert will be held in the lakeside pavilion, but if it's too cold, we'll move into the lovely chapel.


StrathSpan was supposed to play two performances Friday July 10th on the Alex Beaton stage at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games - that is until Covid 19 caused the Games to be cancelled. However, the Games committee has been very busy putting together a weekend of video footage that will be aired live on YouTube and Facebook. The show will begin with the historic torchlight ceremony at 8:30 PM on Thursday July 9th. It will continue over the weekend, showing some of the Games most popular events and musicians. StrathSpan is honored to air on Saturday July 11th at 12 noon. Please log in to Facebook live or Youtube to catch our performance!!!
