NEW YEAR’S EVE – “HOGMANAY” – DINNER AND A SHOW – with Shannon Quinn and Special Guests

Ring in the New Year at The Carleton (that would be Monday, December 31st for the calendarly challenged) with food, fiddles, friends and… kilts?

Hogmanay (Scots: [ˌhɔɡməˈneː]; English: /ˌhɒɡməˈneɪ/ HOG-mə-NAY) is the Scots word for the last day of the year and is synonymous with the celebration of the New Year (Gregorian calendar) in the Scottish manner.

Enjoy a 3 course dinner with an amuse bouche and two rounds of bubbly (on arrival and at the bells). Shannon Quinn and special guests will be providing the music from 10pm-2am! Shannon has been performing as a fiddler/vocalist for the past 16 years and is an award winning celtic folk musician from Halifax.
