ALEXANDRIA, VA. - In 1749, the City of Alexandria was officially established by three Scottish merchants and named after its original founder, John Alexander, also of Scottish descent. Today, the city continues celebrating its heritage as evidenced by the upcoming spectacular performance of Scottish music and dance, Highland Echoes!

Founder and show producer Jennifer Licko began competitive Scottish Highland Dancing when she was 11, and now she is bringing champion dancers on stage with the magic of musical arrangements by both Pat Mangan (Riverdance) and Bob Noble (notable for his world tours and work with Cliff Richard and A-ha)

There is no doubt that the Scots are a people of love and pride for their land. If you watch the hit TV show Outlander, then you have some insight about the passion the Scots hold for their country.
