Thanks to everyone who came out to the Church last week to see piper Erik Leikin and hear has wonderful classical bagpipe program, and to the fantastic crowd that packed into Don Quixote’s in Felton last week for the launch of the Winterdance Celtic Christmas tour– it was a truly magical and fun night because of you! There’s going to be *one* more chance for you to see that show this year before it leaves town, so read on below, …but first:
THIS Tuesday December 8th, at 7pm (TOMORROW NIGHT)–featuring:

Featuring Aaron Clegg on vocals and Celtic flute, Richard Dwyer on vocals, low whistle, and bodhran, Elise MacGregor Ferrell on fiddle and Great Highland Bagpipes, Jim Powell on guitar, Mick O’Broain on vocals and standup bass.
Then, the series finale:
