Beware the Black Watch! These formidable agents from overseas will soon arrive on our hallowed land with all their dastardly weapons in tow! Yarrrr, these Scots be armed with tartan! With bagpipe! With drum and dancers! With such enthusiasm as to force otherwise calm, collected writers to overuse exclamatory punctuation! Indeed, the Scottish infantry regiment known as the Black Watch (for their dark plaid uniforms) will join the Regimental Band of the Welsh Guard for a once-in-a-lifetime performance of English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish music in Cowtown. More than 90 Scots will Highland Fling themselves into motion, causing wee bairns and grown-ups alike to call out "Aye!" when they witness the artistry indigenous to the land of Queen Mary, whisky and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I'll wager you'll be right chuffed after the show and ready fer more! Alas, we must disappoint: the kilt-friendly performance will be for one night only at Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets in Fort Worth. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Tickets range from $35 to $100. Call 1-877-212-4280 or visit basshall.com.
