Springtime At Fraser's Ridge

A North Carolina Scottish Experience

Outlander Inspired...History Focused

Springtime at Fraser's Ridge is a celebration of the history of North Carolina and the traditions of Scottish culture as they intertwine in Jamie & Claire's North Carolina backcountry wilderness. Springtime at Fraser's Ridge is Outlander inspired but history focused making it a truly unique event for the history-loving Outlander fan. Springtime at the Ridge takes us back in time to experience Scottish and Gaelic music, dance, Scottish inspired cuisine, and so much more! Combine that with an exciting dose of Outlander and you have the perfect combination. Come join us as we celebrate Springtime at Fraser's Ridge!

Our Very Special Guests

Murtagh and Jocasta

Welcome to the Ridge!
(Jocasta Cameron)

Maria Doyle Kennedy is a singer and actress from Dublin, Ireland, who has established herself as one of Ireland’s most prolific artists . Her extensive career includes leading roles in Father Ted, The Tudors, Orphan Black, Downton Abbey and of course as Outlander’s beloved Jocasta Cameron. Maria has also appeared in numerous films and in 2020, was listed as one of Ireland’s greatest film actors by The Irish Times. In addition to her acting career, Maria is an award winning singer/songwriter. She records and performs with husband Kieran Kennedy and their many musical collaborators include John Prine and Damien Rice. Their most recent album *Fire on the Roof of Eden* was recorded at home during lockdown , released in 2020 and described by Hot Press as “a masterpiece of storytelling”.

Welcome to the Ridge,
Duncan LaCroix!
(Murtagh Fitzgibbons)

Duncan Lacroix is an English stage and television actor originally from London but has called Ireland home for many years. Throughout his career, Duncan has appeared in Game of Thrones, Vikings and Outlaw King, to name a few, but we all know and love him most for his role in the STARZ television series, Outlander. Duncan portrays Murtagh, the loyal godfather of Jamie Fraser, who faithfully fights by his side and offers him his protection after making a long ago promise to always look out for him. Sadly, Murtagh was released from that promise and Duncan had to bid Murtagh farewell but he will always live on in the hearts of Outlander fans everywhere. Duncan holds a Bachelors Degree in Drama and Theatre Studies from Roehampton Institute in London, and a Masters Degree in Drama and Theatre from The National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG).

Jennifer Licko & Highland Echoes

Welcome to the Ridge,
Jennifer Licko
& Highland Echoes!

"Behind everything we do is the belief that bringing the Scottish diaspora together and passing on the legacy to future generations is valuable.
We do this by telling the story of our heritage through Scottish music and dance performances and educational programs.
We believe experiencing cultural heritage is beneficial for all ages. We believe that a thriving Scottish culture amongst the Scottish diaspora starts with education and inspiration. Collectively, our Scottish heritage makes our culture stronger. We believe that united, we can have stronger individual communities and can have a long-lasting effect on a thriving presence of Scottish cultural traditions.
In Education, we believe that students deserve the opportunity to benefit from cultural heritage to build self-confidence, increasing awareness of diversity and give an opportunity to connect to Scottish heritage. It’s our dream that every child has the opportunity to engage in culturally responsive educational and artistic experiences.
In Performances, we believe that cultural arts provide inspiration that moves people to take action and become a part of something greater than themselves.
Highland Echoes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to promote Scottish Culture and Traditions. We have a focus on reaching the youth through educational programming in the schools and by providing inspiring shows with our world class group of dancers and musicians."
~Jennifer Licko & Highland Echoes

Leatherwood Mountains Resort

Our venue for The Homecoming is the beautiful Leatherwood Mountains Resort. Within the ten mile radius of where The Ridge is likely located, you will feel as though you have truly stepped back in time when you arrive at Leatherwood. Relax in a luxury vacation home hidden in the trees in Leatherwood's Blue Ridge Mountains and wilderness horse country. Or are you more the rustic type? Leatherwood offers camping options on site. Either way, you will know you have come home to The Ridge. *Note: Should rentals through Leatherwood sell out, rentals through AirBNB or VRBO may be available as an alternative. Please search for rentals in Ferguson, NC.*
