Does anyone remember a Celtic group from Nova Scotia called Kilt? They were wonderful! Unfortuantely they are no longer around. But they came to Virginia once and played at the Radford Highlander Festival. yhey blew the crowd here away! They had a song called Rubber Boots that I believe was nominated for several awards in Canada.

Sorry to pop in here but I thought I'd pass on that this dude I know has traveled all over and he told me the prettiest place he's ever been was Nova Scotia. Gotta check it out sometime.

Homepage: http://www.kilt.ca/ It didn't work for me. It was down.

Kilt is lead by lead vocalist Tony Ronalds, Brennan MacDonald, Bonnie Jean MacDonald, Brian Buckle and Scott MacFarlane. They have been tearing up towns across the country and their Four In The Crib "" is guaranteed to receive rave reviews with their fans alike. Lead vocalist Tony Ronalds performs with a steady baritone voice, offering a selection of celtic influenced originals. The mix of mandolin, acoustic guitar, tin whistles, fiddle and drums add a distinctive aggressive sound. Kilt has bounce!!!! Whether or not you know their music, you clap and sing along?.. Kilt is fun ! With enough wit & satire, this group is sure to make your evening an entertaining one!!!

YUP! Them's the ones! I don't think their site is around anymore. Once they broke up, they fell apart, which is a shame because they were so good! If you can ever find a copy of it, the song Rubber Boots is just SO GOOD!

Thanks for the info Mike!

OH MY HEAVENS!

This is just too cool!

I was just looking around the net trying to find some in info on Kilt and I found a 50 minute concert video of them! And what's REALLY cool is it was filmed the day after I saw them in Radford VA at the Radford Highlanders Festival! Check it out, it is just too cool! I haven't got to listen to the whole thing yet so I don't know if they perform Rubber Boots. anyway, here's the address:

ENJOY!

Well, I listened to the entire thing last night, and I am sorry to say that they do not perform Rubber Boots, but the concert is still worthy of a listen!

I do deeply apologize for daring to post-reply in a place that it no of my business.

It's just that I need some help top plan a voyage to your area and I need advise.

I'll be quick...

First, my real name is Tino and I live the 10% in Hastings, East Sussex, England, and about a 80% in the Hebrides, Alba, in a boat. I've just changes the 12m sloop for a 15m ketch and I'm planning to do the tour of the Atlantic next year. I've sailing a lot around Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland. And, of course, Alba, Eire and Cymru.

Now my idea is to start for greenland and from there to Newfoundland, Terra Nova, Terre-Neuve or whatever you call it.

I am very much interested in any signs, remains, sites, documents or anything that could constitute a proof that someone else was there from Europe before than that Venetian called Cristobolo Colombo -or Columbus as I think you say- and his band of Castillian river ducks. There are legends in Galiza that the Vikings, Norsk, Basque, Celts and even Berbers and Portuguese fishermans were there long before.

The second thing is tips in good isolated beautiful moorings -I mean where I can moor in the wild without breaking the law- like the Alba lochs.

What about the laws for foreign yachts arrivals? I will be showing the Alba and Galiza flags.

You can answer in English or French, I don't mind. I'll answer in the language of your choice so far is Spanish, English, Portuguese, French, Italian or Russian.

Ta in advance.

Well, Newfoundland has our only real sites that prove the Vikings built long-houses on this side. As far as I know, at any rate. I'll try to find you some information on tours, or sites you can visit.

As for mooring, I'm not sure what you mean. A place to dock the boat? As far as I know, that's legal at any public port. Keltic would know more about this, as he spent much time on the atlantic.

Just be sure you don't come to the Maritimes without seeing Nova Scotia (Nouvelle Ecosse). And on your trip from Newfoundland to the mainland, you may be interested in visiting France. biggrin.gif There are two small islands off the west coast of Newfoundland (southern) called St. Pierre and Miquellon, which are still a part of France. As far as I know, the only American land remaining north of the Caribean where the people are still loyal to France.

Saint Pierre et Miquellon! Not a chance I'm going to miss that...

YES! I knew it! Vikings were first... Oooh, yes! As much information as you can find.

"Il signore Colombo" was as much of a navigator as me the Archbishop of Canterbury. He knew that "that" land was there because he did steal a map from a dying Portuguese fisherman in Madeira but he thought that it was Catai or Cipango (the actual China and Japan) that at that time were called in a collective way "Indias", so he thought that he had arrived to the "Indias" therefore he named "indios" (indians) to the people he found in the new land. He was a useless b***ard!

I have the book called "The log of Chistopher Columbus" and if you see the entries you need a bucket. A monkey could do it better. The brothers Pinzn, captains of the other two ships, were miles away better than him.

You dock in a harbour but you moor in the middle of nowhere by just dropping the anchor/anchors. I don't like crowded marinas full of Sunday sailors. So I don't know how happy the Canadian authorities are with people mooring without control.

I love nature and my best friends in the loch are the seals, dolphins, puffins and seagulls. (And an old albatross that I don't know what the hell is doing that far North. He lost the bearings and got hooked in my boat. Poor soul!)

Any way! That's what I am looking for: Places to visit specially the ones off the bitten truck. Yes, I want to see the typically touristy places (Halifax at most), but even more places that are stunningly beautiful and nobody normally see.

And "bien sure" all the original Celt settlements.
