Salutations, friends of Celtic Music Night at St Andrew! And welcome December! The Winter Series is under way, and you are invited!
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend with friends, and kin, and plenty of good food…. And now for your fill of Celtic Music as December unfolds in Aptos!!
I just want to say a quick thanks so much to everyone who came out to hear me play at last weeks Celtic Music Night at St. Andrew Church! It was really a wonderful trip down musical memory lane for me, playing all those tunes from the ol’ Rosie McCann’s days, Santa Cruz High School CD project , and from the dawn of Molly’s Revenge… and Ye’s where lovely crowd! And, yes, the full evolution of Molly’s Revenge will be bringing the ever popular WinterDance show to Felton, This Thursday Night at Don Quixote’s… more on that in a moment below….
THIS Tuesday December 1st, at 7pm (TOMORROW NIGHT)–featuring:
Erik Leiken — professional highland bagpiper featuring a program of traditional and modern piobaireachd (Scotland’s classical pipe music).
Erik is an avid competitive bagpiper, and has been well know on the competition scene for years as a member of many fantastic Grade One bagpipe bands, as well as a soloist in the professional division.
December 8 — Charmas — local Irish music band with traditional songs and dance tunes a’plenty.. &, the grande finale…
December 15 — The Peninsula Scottish Fiddlers — the return of a favorite; the bay area’s epic Scottish fiddle orchestra!
