Just thought I'd drop a little note about the Cincinnati Celtic
fest this past weekend. Lots of good music, and from a spectator's
perspective, well organized. Of course, some bonehead thought
that they could have Ceili dancing up on stage with the band
instead of clearing out the chairs from in front of the stage.
No matter, we just started things up outside the tent. A bit
of advice: keep the dancers away from the tent support ropes.
Those big steel pegs _hurt_ when tripped over...
Nice festival. Well worth the trip.
PS-If you like biniou/bombarde, La Gaudinais is a real kick. I
know, I know, not IRTRAD-related...
