    A Celtic Celebration in Schmucker Grove (corner of Springs Ave. and Seminary Ridge)! Venues and reviewers characterize Cormorant's Fancy as "spellbinding," "with a knack for gorgeous arrangements." From tender love songs to growling soul-stirrers, and from pitch-perfect a cappella to ac-companied complexity, they propel audiences into the living Celtic tradition. Cormorant's Fancy's compel-ling cross-generational lineup unites the past, present and future, so that whether they are stirring the crowd from the festival or concert stage, leading the pub or hall in song, gracing the parlor, or accompanying step dancers, their music rings true. (In the case of inclement weather the concert will be in the Seminary chapel on Seminary Ridge.)

Q: When are you going to record Down by the Sally Gardens with Joel Folkemer as guest soloist?
A: Stephen does a great job with "Down By the Salley Gardens," but we definitely ought to consider whether we'd ask Joel to make a guest "appearance." Do you think we should record a third CD soon?
