This was a very sad year for the webmistress, as she had to miss the event because of some job things. Lucky for me, there were talented people at the Celebration who took great pictures! One, I just communicated with on Facebook. His name is C.W. Wilkinson, and he hung out and posted his pic’s with the Stirling Mercenaries. C.W. has a Facebook Page too. Lucky for me, my community is amazing and there were incredible people who cataloged it all! See some comments below from those I was able to find =)
Just spent a glorious two days at the 2012 2nd Annual Reno Celtic Celebration and Ceilidh. Mega-kudos to Willie Puchert and his large and dedicated team of assistants and volunteers, and to Pat Campbell-Cozzi at the Wildflower Village who made it such an enjoyable success. I had the great pleasure of assisting with Celtic Rock Band Tempest’s “Mega-Store” and being able to listen to all four of their sets, as well as those of “Molly’s Revenge” and Local Wonders 317. If you were there you know. If you weren’t, get thee to the very next one near you. Warm your heart and feed your soul…

CELTIC CELEBRATION IS A WRAP. EVERYTHING about it was AWESOME.. Seeing Gwen Bohdan, Lisa Lee, Pat Campbell-Cozzi and Christie Cotcher Lisa Lee, Kristen and hanging with the PIRATES Mad Jack Wythim and Pirates Reno ‘s Commodore! Experiencing Molly’s Revenge and Tempest in REAL LIFE and singing with my FAVORITE IRISHMAN Kevin Lyons and the rest of my beautiful band of Jameson drinking eirophiles, 3-17! Bryan Wildman and Willie Puchert and Danielle Gann-Lind OUTDID themselves. it was a weekend to remember forever. The Sierra Highlanders and the Sacramento pipe band were mindbendingly, molecule vibratingly intense and soul stirring. I am SO grateful for being a part of the celtic community in Reno.
