Growing up in a Scottish family, Aileen MacHarg has been surrounded by Celtic culture her entire life. This has led her to learn Scottish Gaelic as well as several Celtic instruments. She is a member of the band Stravaigain, in which she sings and plays whistle. She has been playing the whistle since she was 12 years old, singing for as long as she can remember, and is currently learning to play the pipes. In addition to being involved with Celtic music, Aileen is the Event Organizer for the Vermont Institute of Celtic Arts. She was the Director of the Highland Games at Fort #4 in Charlestown NH, which was extremely successful in it's first year.
