Everyone Loves a Festival!

Good day to you all, friends and fans of Celtic Music! Thanks alot to everyone who came out last Tuesday in support of Celtic Music Night, and our trio with Rebecca Lomnicky & Peter Haworth; what a great time, and so great to see you all!

I just wanted to remind you all that if you missed us there, OR just can’t get enough Celtic Music goodness, then please come out this weekend to:

The Santa Cruz Celtic Music FestivalThat’s right— for THIS weekend, June 16th & 17TH!

Held out at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds! To be joined be other fantastic musical friends from Scotland whom will be over visiting. You can find out more information ON THE FESTIVAL, OTHER PERFORMERS, AND THE PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE HERE ON THEIR WEBSITE:


Also, PLEASE NOTE: the dates of this festival ARE THIS WEEKEND, June 16th & 17th. There were some typo ads that got out there saying it’s in July but that is not true– it’s June.


David Brewer, Rebecca Lomnicky, with Peter Haworth, 

Pipes, fiddle, bouzouki and vocals

To perform this weekend Saturday 2pm, 5pm, & 7:30pm, AND Sunday 1:15, & 5pm!

Together, David & Rebecca bring an exciting synergy of tradition, technique, and enthusiasm to the stage; talking with their eyes as the sounds of the pipes and fiddle blend into a power-house sound of subtleties and emotion leaving audiences refreshed and inspired. With a silky backdrop of bouzouki accompaniment from Peter Haworth, the trio bridges the gap between modern compositions and the ancient peoples-music of Scotland.

Peter and David are founding members of the popular west coast Celtic band, Molly’s Revenge. Rebecca is the 2009 winner of the Glenfiddich International Fiddle Championship, widely regarded as the most prestigious in the world. She is currently studying at Cornell University.
