David Christie - Bagpipe Dreamer




Above: Photo courtesy of David Christie Scottish roots go deep into New Hampshire rocky soil, and the fruits of that rugged tree are such popular attractions as the Scottish Highland Games at Loon Mountain, the Southern Highland Games, the Scottish Heritage Tartan Dinner, the Scottish Heritage Golf Classic and the Strathspray and Reel Society. Now, David Christie, who has his fingers in just about every haggis in the state, wants to unite New Hampshire and Scotland with a $32 million cultural embassy situated in Concord. The 65,000-sq.-ft. Scottish Heritage Center and Museum of North America would be a world-class destination for exhibition and research. Sound far-fetched? Christie has the ear of some pretty impressive figures in the states, and the Scottish government is considering a substantial grant of seed money for the project.
