      The New York Tattoo

      Bringing the best of a Scottish tradition and 'an evening of champions' to New York!

      Showcasing some of the finest bands, Highland dancers and Scottish performers, in an inspiring 90 minute stage show – the New York Tattoo will provide an exciting platform for everyone who shares a passion for Scotland.

      The term ‘tattoo’ dates from 17th century Europe, when garrisons sent out drummers in the evening to inform the soldiers that it was time to return to barracks. The process was known in Dutch as ‘doe den tap toe’ (Dutch for “turn off the tap”), an instruction to innkeepers to stop serving beer. Over time the performance of a ‘tattoo’ became more elaborate to showcase music and dance.

      The fast-paced stage show, with a cast of over 100 members, will bring together performers from Scotland, Canada and the USA.
