Feb 08, 2020 11:05AM

The public is invited to learn more about Scottish culture through narrative, bagpipes, drum, and dance at the Springville Senior Center, March 4, at p.m.

This event is free and open to all ages. Leeanne Johnson started bagpiping when she was 15 years old at Payson High School. She met Danny Johnson in 2001 at Utah State University in Logan, and they were married the following year.

She taught him how to play bagpipes, and they have been involved in multiple bagpipe bands and Scottish festivals throughout Utah and adjoining states ever since.

They have five children who are also involved in various Scottish activities; one very tall snare drummer, one bagpipe player, and three Scottish dancers. Two of the dancers are also learning the bagpipe. The youngest wants to drum.

The Springville Senior Center is located at 65 East, 200 South, in Springville.
