I can't believe this! I go to work for a whole week and FIFTY members join the forum board! Now how am I supposed to keep up with those Highlander Greeetings at this rate....hee hee... its a GOOD thing Leo brought all that beer!
Hello everyone. My name is Becky. I gound celtic radio a few days ago and now I'm hooked. My family has been traced back to a Sir Francis Brooke in England but for some reason we all have red hair and tempers to match. I believe if we look a little further back I'm sure that we would find a Scottish heritage. At least my heart is Scottish, I just don't know about the rest of me. I hope to travel to Scotland within the next 10 years. By then my children will be gone. My husband is Polish by birth but has a heart of a Highlander. I hope to post more later.

Some men are drawn to oceans, they cannot breathe unless the air is scented with a salty mist. Others are drawn to land that is flat, and the air is sullen and is leaden as August. My people were drawn to mountains- Earl Hamner Jr.
My name's John, but my nickname is Spoone (silent e). For any wondering about the MacCormack moniker, it's a long story cut short. In a nutshell, it was an untimely wedding to the wrong man that led to my last name. (I know who my real grandfather is...LOL)
I've been listening to the pipes since I can remember...and pleating my own kilts for local highland games for about as long...
Anyway...this has run long. Good to meet you all, and have a good one.
Greetings! I would like to introduce myself. My name is Craig and I live in western New York State. I am of Sottish heritage and I consume single malts faithfully.(Usually from the Spey region but I enjoy others) My family and I attend various highland games and Celtic festivals throughout the region. I have heard some great Scottish/Celtic/Irish music at these events and at clubs.
Some of my favorites are Glengarry Bhoys and Hadrians Wall. There are three acts that are pretty much regional but are really talented musicians, The Dady Brothers and The Wild Geese both from Rochester, NY. The other is a four piece Celtic band from the Buffalo area called Kilbrannan. If your ever in the area check them out.
