Celtic Corner

by Roz Carothers

After the flurry of festivals in the month of May, things have slowed down for June. Be sure to check out the Sunday night concerts at Kitty O'Kirwans on Bauer Avenue every Sunday evening from 7-9 p.m. Cloigheann kicks off the month on June 1. And don't forget the sessions at Kitty's every Thursday evening. Bring your instrument and don't be shy!

For those of you who want to travel, don't miss the Potomac Celtic Festival on June 14th and 15th. What a lineup. Featured performers are: Cherish the Ladies; Beolach; Mike Seegers; Iona; Tornaod; Teada; and Charlie Zahm. For more information on this spectacular event, visit their website at www.potomaccelticfest.org.

Don't want to go that far you say? Then head up to Fort Wayne, Indiana for the Indiana Highland Games from June 6 -8. The Ceilidh will be on Friday and Saturday evenings. With over 5,000 expected to attend, it'll be quite the party.
