I shall be going to Lyonesse, weather not withstanding (noblesse
oblige - it's no joke).
However! If I were not, and if I lived anywhere near Dallas, I
would be at the North Texas Irish Festival.
To anyone who does go, may I recommend that you attend one of the
performances of "Ceili's Muse." The Muses (Mary, Maggie, Melanie,
and Chuck), are spread between Houston, and Austin, and play "our"
kind of Celtic Folk. They are heavily SCA influenced, and have
made a true splash with a devoted following here in Houston (their
shows always sell out). I've only once been able to get them to
play at an event (it was actually arranged as a surprise for me),
but they will still show up on occasion in their own personae.
Another Houston (with SCA ties) band that will be performing at
the North Texas Irish Festival, is the "Flying Fish Sailors." I
really hate it when they and the 'Muses both play on the same
night. These guys play folk music with an emphasis on the
nautical, I've been glad to have them play for my court on more
than one occasion.
Both groups also have CDs that are well worth the price.
If I could, I would be there. . . .
