Scottish Games
Note: Description is from 2009:

Scottish Highland Gathering and Games, presented by the Caledonian Club of San Francisco! Only in Pleasanton can the term, "The Big One" be realized. As one of the world's largest Celtic gatherings, the event on Saturday and Sunday, September 5 and 6, is one of the Greater Bay Area's best entertainment values for the entire family. Shop and compare! So much to do and see at an admission price far below its value!

The haunting bagpipes and drums are magnified by more than 25 pipe bands from the U.S. and Canada, all competing for top recognition, and, all providing a unique experience in the "Massed Bands" held each afternoon as part of the spectacular closing program in front of the main grandstands. More than 750 bagpipers and drummers, augmented by the always popular U.S. Marine Band, San Diego and their spectacular marching and show tunes.
Olympic class athletes throwing a 130-pound, 22 foot log into the air with precise strength and agility, propelling the "caber" end-for-end to attempt a perfect score. These same athletes from the U.S. and England using their skills in seven other disciplines of strength, including the World Championship for the Scottish Hammer.

Highland dancing competition and Scottish country dancing exhibitions to the sound of bagpipe and fiddle, plus Celtic harpers and
fiddlers, all part of the weekend activities.

Entertainment - the Games are the epitome of Celtic music - from the classical troubadours singing Celtic tunes, to the accompaniment of their guitar. Melodic musical groups will present a multitude of vocal styles, to the feverish amplified pitch of rock-and-roll, Celtic style - All of this on eight stages with more than a dozen acts throughout the fairgrounds.

Mary Queen of Scots and her Royal entourage holding court and strolling the fairgrounds in 1562.

The Roman Legion, invaders of Scotland centuries ago, and the Vikings who followed, practicing combat and brushing up on their skills to face the famous Highland Warriors who make their presence known with their leader Chief Diarmid. Moving forward to the 1800's and the Gordon Highlanders in their dazzling kilts and red coat uniforms, firing upon the enemy with their Martini-Henry rifles and the rapid pounding sound of the Gatling Gun. -All of this, a part of Living History at the Scottish Gathering and Games. Perhaps you have a bit of Scottish heritage within your veins. Check it out among nearly one-hundred clans represented in their colorful clan tents.

Five-A-Side soccer brings teams from California and Nevada to compete each afternoon. This year the Games had added rugby and shinty on a new playing field. Three games of Rugby and two of Shinty, Scotland's oldest team sport will compete.
The Children's Glen games, prizes and face-painting are a treat for the little tykes. They, along with their parents, will be enthralled by the Birds of Prey, exhibiting falcons, owls and other raptors.
The Clydesdale wagon team and the Highland Cattle are must-see.
British Motor Car Cavalcade
For the adults, "Taste of Whisky at the Games" is an opportunity, at a modest price, to experience top single malts and blended whiskies, and attend a whisky seminar to learn about Scotland's famed spirits. A new addition is the Red Lion Pub, where one can purchase a variety of imported ales and beers and enjoy ethnic foods. There are more than one-hundred vendors within five buildings, plus Scottish/British and standard fairgrounds food. The old adage, "something for everyone" stands true and tall at the 144th Scottish Highland Gathering and Games - and, you don't have to be Scottish to enjoy this captivating experience.

Spencer Day
His seriously sexy vocals are nostalgic reminders of a time when ladies were ladies and gentlemen were gentlemen. But his music is an eclectic and refreshing mixture of everything from Cole Porter to Paul Simon creating an epic feel with each song. Largely self-taught, Day's work reveals the influences of such diverse composers as Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Joni Mitchell, Carol King, John Lennon and Paul Simon. Day has developed an artistic sensibility that borrows from numerous sources: jazz, musical theatre, cabaret, soul, folk, traditional pop and contemporary pop are just the tip of the iceberg. Day uses intuition and improvisation as his primary tools to craft a sound that is traditional and familiar, yet fresh and innovative at the same time, creating a blend too subtle to parse into neatly defined categories.

Montrose and Gary Hoey
In 1993 Gary Hoey launched his career with the hit song “Hocus Pocus” and his fiery technique helped to send it to the Top 5 on Billboard’s charts. He then followed up with the soundtrack to the surf saga, Endless Summer II. With a collection of 16 albums and five Top 20 Billboard hits, it’s no wonder Gary Hoey is considered one of the greatest guitar players of all time.

Ronnie Montrose and Sammy Hagar formed their band Montrose in 1973. Montrose pioneered and influenced an entire generation of West Coast Rock and Roll by firing out big guitar riffs, the classics Rock Candy, Bad Motor Scooter, Rock the Nation and Space Station #5, and soulful dynamic vocals with extreme “attitude!” Ronnie’s guitar genius and legendary rock albums have earned him the title of “Rock and Roll Guitar Legend.” Picking up where Sammy left off is well-qualified singer/frontman Keith St. John. Keith has been cited by Montrose followers and indeed both Sammy and Ronnie as the one guy who can fill those shoes!

Caledon
Caledon’s repertoire is drawn from a rich and diverse selection of Scottish songs from the Borders to the Hebrides: Famous Burns orchestrated poems, including My Love is like a Red, Red Rose, classic ballads such as Loch Lomond and traditional songs such as Robert Tannahill's The Braes o' Balquhidder, which dates to the 18th century. But before you think, "Oh, those old Scots songs - I have heard them a thousand times" - pause awhile and listen to these three tenors. Together, their individual tenor quality and pitch, blended in perfect harmony, creates a totally distinctive vocal performance. The three classically trained opera singers are Alan Beck, Ivan Sharpe and Jamie MacDougall. Each has pursued successful independent careers, appearing on the international opera stage and concert halls over the past 15 years.

Deolinda
The secret to their popularity must surely lie in their exuberant, sometimes comic performances, the sweet and catchy or soft melancholic guitar melodies, and music littered with emotive references to fado and other less prominent musical traditions. The songs carry the stories of Deolinda – a young Lisbon woman who lives with her cats and goldfish in an apartment and watches through her window as the world goes by – as brought to life by the group’s dynamic, charismatic singer, Ana Bacalhau, who brings Deolinda’s stories to life.
