Culture Shock

Scottish Xmas—Instead of a golden goose, this Christmas perhaps you should consider dining on a big steaming sack of haggis. Or not. I suppose you could also get your Scottish fix simply by attending the Scottish Christmas concert at UNM's Popejoy Hall on Sunday, Dec. 17. Expect traditional Scottish carols, wassail tunes and Highland dances along with three-time U.S. Scottish fiddlin' champ Bonnie Rideout and other renowned Celtic musicians such as Jerry O'Sullivan, William Jackson, John Doyle and Matthew Bell. The show starts at 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $20, $29, $35 and $39., 925-5858.

Give Some Direction—This might be your shot. The North Valley's Adobe Theater is currently soliciting ideas for plays and smallish musicals to be staged during the second half of 2007. Directors should complete a submission form, available by calling Enid Sorenson at 294-7217, or by going to The form should be accompanied by three copies of the proposed script. If it's a musical, also include three CDs of music from the show. The Adobe prefers published works but original plays will also be considered.

Forget the Wii. This year, the art at the Yale Art Center’s holiday sale is all the rage.

GiftedYale Art Center is still hosting its Gifted show, designed to allow local artists to sell relatively inexpensive work as gifts during the holidays. The exhibit and sale will continue through Dec. 22. It's perfect for any last-minute shopping you need to do. For more information, visit or call 242-1669.

Poetry Jam—Rio Rancho's new public library, located at 755 Loma Colorado NE, will host a reading for young poets during its grand opening on Thursday, Dec. 14, at 6 p.m. Featured performers will come from UNM and local high schools. The event will be followed by a brief open mic. For details, call 891-5013 ext. 3032.
