Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Holding four concerts at Minnesota venues where Scots Gaelic is rarely presented will increase the variety of folk and traditional activities Minnesota. I will have a survey form for audience members to fill out asking them questions regarding the variety of folk and traditional activities in which they could participate and how this differed from concerts they have attended in the past. 2: Holding four concerts at Minnesota venues where Scots Gaelic is rarely presented will increase the variety of folk and traditional activities Minnesota.
