Celtic Fest Mississippi begins to gear up!

Wow, has it really been since March 17 since I posted here?  Sorry, there has been a lot going on around here in other aspects, so here we go.

From our friends at CelticFest:

September 9, 10, & 11
Ag Museum, Jackson MS 

CelticFest #20
The 20th CelticFest Mississippi
is coming!
All the fundraisers, sponsorships, months of planning, sweating, professional counseling, and lots of Bandaids lead up to the best weekend in Jackson... now 20 years old.

CelticFest began as a way to introduce Mississippians to a genre of folk music and dance that we thought was pretty cool, but that also happens to be quite relevant to Mississippi's history.

What began as a humble labor of love has become a big labor of love, staffed 100% by volunteer workers and with an army of volunteer performers.
The secret is well out, with CelticFest garnering a national reputation amongst musicians and Celtic music fans: Mississippi has a gem of a traditional Celtic music festival (not to mention the largest céilí in the South, and in 2010 set the record for the largest Brush Dance in North America.)
Come see what all the rí-rá is about!
