Less than a month, Main Stage Schedule!

We are super pleased to welcome back old friends on the Reno Celtic Main stage, and hope to introduce you to new friends!

We are super please to introduce Sligo Rags to the Truckee Meadows Area:

Many of you will remember “Dusty in My Coffee” from a couple years ago. We thought their style would blend well with “Sligo Rags”, so we decided to ask them back. Many folks enjoyed them here last time:

Clans to Edinburgh Castle…

Many of us have spent a lot of time reading and knowing the history of the clans in Scotland and the uprising in 1745. I’ve been to Culloden and it’s sobering. Read this awesome article from the Scotsman, where they detail some of the history and talk about the clans being welcomed back into the Great Hall at Edinburgh Castle for the first time since the uprising. Awesome.
