Dear Festival Followers,

We tried something new and different this September, 2020. It is something that has been tried by other festivals, and other events, as we try to navigate our way through the challenges and unknowns that COVID-19 has brought into our lives. But it is something that we had never tried.

In doing so we had to stretch ourselves, and learn new skills.
But none of that really matters unless you, who have always made this Festival happen, weren’t willing to broaden yourselves as well!

You did! And our artists did. And we are grateful to all of you for making this a fun, sometimes frustrating, and ultimately rewarding 2020 Virtual Celebration of Celtic music and culture.

Thank you!

PS – Please check back later today for an enticing event announcement for this weekend.

And, if you are interested…

All of the artists were very kind to mention our Festival so far. While it’s generous of them, this Festival has always been about the artists, you, our followers, and the mixing of the both.

We wanted our artists to come out of this weekend a bit more whole than they were going in. If you virtually tipped them, we thank you. If you still would like to, but are having difficulty figuring out how, please let us know at We will be glad to help you to make that happen.

While we had no expenses in the making of this virtual festival, we have high hopes of being live again in 2021. Then, we will have significant expenses. If you wish to contribute it will certainly help fund us next year.

What follows are a three ways of going about that.
