We are playing festivals in June, July and September. June 23rd is the Something Else Fest in Wagontown, PA, near Coatsville. This festival will really be something else. It is a mix of bluegrass, folk and Celtic music. It will be well worth the drive for sure for all my bluegrass and Irish music friends. Watch for ticket sales to be added to their website. When you buy your tickets, please mention Across the Pond because it will help boost our pay for the performance. The July 21st we perform at the Adams County Irish Festival. This festival is always a fun, family event. Don't fret, yes, they sell food and beer.

Then on September 1st we play 2 sets at the McLain Celtic Festival in Carlisle, PA. And don't miss this one either. This Celtic festival and the Irish festival above are two jewels in the local area.

And, of course, just starting our 2nd year together, each festival will be a debut performance. And we plan to play some mighty traditional folk tunes and songs with high enthusiasm and energy for you. Hope to see many of you there.
