I read about that wonderful Scottish Fling gathering in San Francisco of fellow OS’ers. Unfortunately there was no way we could make that as our weekends have been so full.
But I would hope those OS'ers who enjoyed the Scottish fling would love to gather in a place that Cindy and I will be in October. We have been hired to be a part of the management team for the KVMR Celtic Music Festival and Market Place.
Take a quick look at the web site for where we will be: http://kvmr.org/celticfestival/index.html
Those hats were great. But now there is time to plan for this and come in full costume to 13th annual KVMR Celtic Festival and Market Place which is held at the Nevada County Fair Grounds in Grass Valley, California the first weekend of October.
The Fair Grounds has a camp site with RV hookups or you can stay in a B&B (there are several) or hotel.
It is one of the top Celtic Festivals in the Western states. Another of course the one a friend puts on in Sebastopol, California a couple of weeks earlier.
This is more than music, it is an event for those OS'ers who are serious hedonists as there is much to enjoy.
After reading Cathy's comments about the OS Scottish fling I thought as we couldn't make the OS gathering in San Francisco I would hope that the OS'ers would enjoy a full weekend of Celtic experience with jousting, dances, storytelling, games, history.
Take a look at the web site, and browse through all of it including the history. Cindy and helped put together the first festival. This has grown to where it has become large community for the weekend, a village. For those who fondly recall the Renaissance Fairs of years past I am sure you will enjoy this
Below are two performers booked so far. Dougie McClean has always been an audience favorite and Enter the Haggis is high energy Celtic Rock and will get you dancing for sure.
I should apologize for this sounding like a commercial for the Festival. But, again, after seeing all of you enjoying yourselves at the Pub and finding myslef somewhat envous I thought, they NEED to come to the Festival as it is only a couple of hours from the Bay Area held at the most beautiful fair grounds in California.
