I just found out today that on top of the usual great weekend at the Virginia Highlands Festival Celtic weekend on saturday and sunday, this year they are also having a friday night concert starting out with Uncle Hamish and the Hooligans and closing the night is going to be Enter the Haggis!!!!
I've wanted to see them live for forever and now is my chance!! For any of you in and around the Southwest Virginia area you need to come out that weekend for great music. those two bands friday night and then saturday and sunday there will be Coyote Run ( a personal fav), Rathkeltair (another personal fav), and a new band I've not heard of yet but sure they will be great called Tinsmith. I'm certain there will be another 2 or 3 bands added to the event but that lineup alone to me personally seems great!!!
The festival is the last weekend in july, i'm thinking the 30th, 31st and 1st.
hope to see some of you there. Let me know if anyone is going to show up I'd love to be able to meet some of my friends from Celtic Radio.
later on in the year the Sycamore shoals Celtic Festival is coming up in September and would love to know if anyone is going to be there as well. it's being held at Elizabethton, TN september 10th,11th and 12th
