Frequently Asked Questions


The Brigadoons have been entertaining across Canada, the United States, and on cruises in the Caribbean for more than 45 years! People in the area have grown up with their music and their children are now doing the same. Denis Carr leads the group and is the longest serving member; Reg Portieous and Dan Leroux keep the sound going with Ashley MacLeod and Paddy Kelly added to the mix.

Formed by Rob Taylor in 1971, they have been the perennial favorites at the Capital District Scottish Games (New York State), The New Hampshire Highland Games at Loon Mountain, their own Glengarry Highland Games and many other US and Canadian Highland Games and festivals for as long as people can remember, including several years at Disney’s Epcot Centre.

The Brigadoons are still performing that traditional sound and while new songs are being added to their repertoire , they still perform all of the old favorites: Glengarry My Home, The Martintown song, Pipers of Glengarry at the request of their loyal fans.

Processing and convenience fees are standard in the performing arts industry, but since the Capitol Center for the Arts handles ticket sales independently, our fees are much lower than the average fee you’ll find with theatres using third party ticketing companies. A variable per ticket convenience fee will be added to every order purchased online or by phone. You are not charged this per ticket fee when purchasing in person at the Box Office. These fees help to cover the cost of operating the theatre, as well as administrative and box office staffing, credit card fees charged by merchant services, ticketing software, 24/7 ordering via our website, postage, computer and telephone systems, utilities and supplies.

Refunds or exchanges are not permitted for any tickets purchased unless the show cancels. Please do not purchase a ticket unless you are sure that you can attend.  Members of the Capitol Center for the Arts may exchange tickets for credit toward future events.  Tickets must be presented to the box office during business hours at least 24 hours prior to the event. Tickets that are part of a VIP, Meet and Greet, or group/subscription discount package may not be eligible for ticket insurance.
