Hello!! Hope no one minds me plugging a new community. This is a community for finding and embracing your Scottish roots through your clan societies all over the world. It's a place to embrace your heritage, and to find your family roots and join up with others with whom you may share a common clan! Please come and join! I'm hoping to have a different "theme" each month, and hopefully lots of good posts, feedback and information.

Cheers! Come join!

So, it took a little longer than expected, what with me not having any fer-reaking power for five days after The Bigge Ice Storm of 2007, and various other delays, but...

Pics from the Austin Celtic Festival.

Seven Nations, Grene, Maloney, Kollar and Harkin, and Needfire.

Estes Park [02 Sep 2007|02:44pm]

Anyone else headed to Estes Park, Co for the Scottish Festival this week? I've never been before, but I've heard that it is huge. We managed to get the second to last hotel room available in town. I'm wondering exactly how crowded it's going to be.

Greetings, everyone.
I've created a new community for those interested in anything related to the Celtic nations (whether that be heritage, culture, music, etc). Once the community has a larger member-base, there will be weekly posts of links related to something Celtic, as well as weekly mp3's of Celtic music. Please feel free to join or to take a look.

I hope it was alright to promote in this community, but if not, I'll delete the entry.
Slainte!

Anyone going to the Ligonier Games in PA this weekend? At least I think it's this weekend... I'm at school and am unable to go, but my dad's going. Wish I could be there.

Central New York Highland Games [12 Aug 2005|06:37pm]

I'm going to the Central New York Highland Games tomorrow. It will be my first time attending a Highland Games, although I am hoping to go to the Scottish Games also, in the Capital District on September 3-4. (I have a friend in the Schenectady Pipe Band.) Anyone else in this community going to this one? What should a newbie look for?

Hi everyone --

I finally got my pictures from the 2005 Texas Scottish Festival posted. This is all of them:

The Rogues  ::  Jiggernaut  ::  Brother  ::  Other Performers

In the "Other" category, we have Alasdair Fraser, Brian McNeill (formerly of the Battlefield Band -- I adore this guy; he gets up in front of a Texas audience and lets fly with "Join the Union" -- what's not to love?), Needfire, the Sarah Dinan Band and yes, even *more*.
