News and Notes
We have survived another year at the amazing
Dublin, Ohio Irish fest, 19 yrs. in all…
They are the largest 3 day Irish fest in
the world, and they deserve that honor.
There is a video or two in the collection
above on our Dublin Festival excursions.
Our last Irish fest of the year will be
in Louisville, KY, again this year. We look
forward to the event each year, and of course
a very special 1916 exhibit is in the works.
As a bonus, it is inside as part of the cultural
exhibit, so be sure to stop in and see us
if you are in the area:
It is Sept 24 and 25. All at Bellarmine University.
Plan your trip now… I will film a video this time.
1:15 – 1:45 p.m. Sat.

Another Sean Nos Album in the Works
I have the songs memorized and may have a few
musicians join in for a few. Most will be in
the Irish old style or sean nos format.
Thanks to all for supporting my first three
albums, available at CDBaby, Amazon, and iTunes.
