The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2017: Splash of Tartan
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo returned to the iconic Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle in 2017 for its 68th season as it celebrated Splash of Tartan. ABC Classics is proud to announce the Australian release of the Splash of Tartan CD recorded live at Edinburgh.
Welcoming a cast of more than 1,200 performers from all points of the compass, including over 250 pipers and drummers, five United Kingdom military bands drawn from across the three Services, as well as plenty of other surprises along the way – The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is one of the greatest shows on earth!
This year’s programme paid rich tribute to the UK’s maritime heritage and the Royal Navy in this special year, with HMS Queen Elizabeth now on sea trials and HMS Prince of Wales in build.
Also encompassing Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, the 2017 Tattoo reflected on Scotland’s links across the globe and showcased some of its finest musical traditions with outstanding performances from the Tattoo Dance Company and the Hjaltibonhoga – The Shetland Fiddlers.
Joined by acts from France, the United States, India, and – for the first time ever – Japan, the 68th Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, brought cast and audience from all over the world together to celebrate another extraordinary year.
