Their next date in their season at the Metropolitan Room will be April 8th 2015 Where they hope to catch the crowds and tourists of New York City’s Tartan Week to give them a show like no other. It has been said of the Highland Divas that; “The strengths and talents of these women are extremely apparent as individual performers but it is their incredible blend as a trio, that has audiences giving them standing ovations every night, as they perform songs from their homelands full of emotion and power. Songs such as: Caledonia, Loch Lomond, Hine Hine and Auld Lang Syne to name but a few. An incredible show and a must see Trio.”
