Spring Season and More!

The Spring Season of Celtic Music Night at St. Andrew is under way, and that means we are ON for TONIGHT!

First of all, I want to thank everyone who came out to Music Night and to the Capitola Book Cafe last week in support of David Sibbald’s visit; it was really a fantastic experience working with him, and with Scots singer Peter Daldry. Your support in the form of donations and attendance is what made it a success! Thanks a lot everyone!!!
Oh yes, not to mention how great the jam session was– rocking!!! We will repeat that fun factor tonight!

I had such a fabulous time touring up through Oregon performing with Peter Daldry— his powerful voice and new repertoire of songs has really elevated to a new level even since the last time we worked together to record his album Familiar Roads.

And so, I am very pleased to announce our upcoming duo concert!

This is going to be a tremendous night of traditional & new songs, and fun tunes! I know it may be a distance for some of you, but I really hope you can make it! Angelica’s has become one of my very favorite venues to perform because the delicious food and charming ambience is truly fantastic—it’s a wonderful place to enjoy a concert! You’ll have a lovely time with us there! And please help us spread the word if you happen to know anyone up that direction, we’d love to meet them too—bring family and friends for a really good time.. 🙂
