The Solo Piping Goodness…


Many apologies for being so late with this. It should have been up awhile ago, but life has been a bit crazy!

Without further ado, here is the application form for the Solo Piping Competition.

The Solo Piping Competition will take place on Saturday October 5, 2013. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m., with competition beginning at 9:30 a.m.

The form can be found at the link above, or on our Pipe Bands Page.

Please let us know if there are any other questions.

While this is by no means an inclusive list, we are proud to announce amazing musical guests for the main stage at the Reno Celtic Celebration for this year! We’ve updated our Music page with band bio’s and pics/videos, but the Celtic Celebration is very proud this year to welcome:

Avalon Rising

Molly’s Revenge

Blarney Band


We don’t have specifics yet about times these folks will play, but we sure are glad to have them. Stay tuned and we’ll post more as we get more information!

There was a time when Flickr would allow you to message folks to ask their permission about using their work, but I couldn’t find any way to do that. If you see this and would like the picture taken down, please notify us, otherwise, we are giving credit, and hope that’s okay. tsgeisel’s photo stream


Getting Ready for 2013, Awesome Videos from 2012…

If, like me, you didn’t make it to the Reno Celtic Celebration last year, here’s a really good way to see what we are all about. We were contacted last year by Brad at Oregon Coast Productions and he did a really great job!

Here are the opening ceremonies:

A big thanks to Brad, and let’s see if we can get him back this year! He’s emailed me, we’re talking, so stay tuned….

There’s other potentially exciting news coming up, and lots happening in the Celtic Community, so come back here to see what else there is happening in the Truckee Meadows.

Have a great day!
