Report from Celtic Fest Mississippi in Jackson 2008

This has been an overwhelming and wonderful experience, with little sleep. The Scottish Alphabet book is selling well. Tom and I have performed three times, and we have one more to go today. I did two story-telling music sessions, and have one to go. There will be many photos of this event. So many talented musicians and dancers, so many fascinating people. Here are three photos to get thoughts on this event started.

The first photo is of me last March, doing storytelling in Baton Rouge, LA. Though not connected with this present festival in Jackson, it is one of my doing storytelling on stage.

The second photo is of me with volunteer workers of the Northeast Louisiana Celtic Society.

The workers are Tina, Rhonda, Amanda, & Gloria. They worked so hard to promote the society and W. Monroe’s upcoming Celtic Festival.

Guinness, along with Fenian’s Pub and Cabot Lodge (where I’m staying in Jackson), is one of the official hosts. Here are the Guinness Girls, whose task was to promote Guinness by photo ops.
