Another successful year for the Great American Irish Festival!  Other than an absolute downpour that canceled the Elders show on Saturday night, the weekend was a total success!  A plethora of great bands!

I’ve uploaded Pics and Videos to CMN’s myspace; www.myspace.com/celtic_music_news, just click on the picture page and the video page.

 My videos aren’t the greatest quality, but the hope/intention was to get a “feel” of the  weekend!

Celtic Music News has just added Scythian to it’s library!

Had the pleasure of seeing Scythian live on 5/23/08 and as usual they put on a stellar performance!  This band is out of Washington DC and is being booked at major festivals and drawing huge crowds of people.  They are real crowd pleasers and play a large selection of Celtic, Gypsy & Ukranian tunes. 

In 2008 this band will have played for Presidents, Prime Ministers & the Pope!  On this past St. Patricks day they played for Continue reading »
