They are joined onstage by Logjam who drum for some dance numbers. This year at Tartan Festival, performances will include a Steampunk set featuring troupe and solo performances as well as a Fusion Delight set featuring live drumming and a guest piper!
The Port Belly Project returns to Scottish Tartan Festival again this year! The PBP performs Tribal Fusion bellydance. "Tribal" meaning dancing as a group, and "Fusion" the melding of dances and costumes from many countries. From Old World Folk to modern American Fusion, the PBP performs a family oriented show to a variety of music. The troupe will be performing dances to Celtic music at this year's event.
