Celtic Music Night returns next Tuesday!

Hello my now distant friends out west!

Your roving piper has made the epic journey east, and now I am elated to write to you and let you know about this wee surprise that

Celtic Music Night at St. Andrew Church is ON for next Tuesday, April 24th, 7pm!
That’s right folks, things have been quite exciting indeed and I have many stories to share from the exciting adventures of crossing the nation and exploring this new coast, encountering new people, tunes, and places, …and just when I’m starting to feel a bit settled in and the winter snows have given way to spring flowers, I am returning to the west coast for a brief tour with Molly’s Revenge, and among the stops for me is, of course, Celtic Music Night!
Among the stops for Molly’s Revenge are a couple of great Scottish Festivals: First, our premier appearance at the Bakersfield Highland Games this Saturday April 21st, and then concerts in Paso Robles, CA, and Reno, NV, and ending up at the fantastic Sacramento Scottish Games in Woodland, CA; one of our all time favorite Scottish festivals, on April 28th & 29th… so come on out and join us in some serious Celtic music-ing revelry if you can make any of those dates…www.mollysrevenge.com
But I will definitely look forward to seeing you all at St Andrew Church in Aptos, 9850 Monroe Avenue, on next Tuesday April 24th at 7pm!
I just can’t wait to return to the beautiful bay area, and tell you about the voyage & new home turf, catch up with you all, and play some epic jam session tunes!!!
And after returning to the east coast for another stint, I will be on tour on the west coast again for the summer, kicking that off with ANOTHER great Celtic Music Night at St Andrew complete with a full cast of featured guests, includingRebecca Lomnicky and Molly’s Revenge! So mark you calendar for Tuesday May 22nd, 7pm!
