    A Night to Remember - 60th Tattoo Season Spectacular

    A panoply of international talent, including UK Tattoo debuts for performers from China and a Canadian Choir, will help celebrate the 60th Edinburgh Tattoo (7-29 August 2009) at this year’s Castle Esplanade Homecoming-themed spectacular.

    With over 1,000 performers, featuring a Tongan cultural troupe, Swiss percussionists, Brit Award winning pipers and drummers as well as singers from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, the show is set to present an absorbing array of fresh content without diluting the popular format which attracts capacity audiences annually.

    But, despite a markedly multinational flavour, the 60th Tattoo will pay tribute to the 250th anniversary of the birth of iconic Scottish poet Robert Burns, and the show will once again open to the heart-stopping sounds of the much-loved Massed Pipes and Drums.

    Some 200 pipers and drummers representing ten different bands from home and overseas are expected to fill the Esplanade with their stirring sight and sounds, featuring rousing renditions of time-honoured favourites such as Scots Wha Hae and Duncan Gray.
