You're still not specific as to what you mean by "Celtic" though.  What
demo?  What kind of armor? Why did they think it was Anglo-Saxon
particularly?  Etc.

I'm sorry! I should have been more specific (I know better than that). Let
me explain the problem.

We had a demo at the North Texas Irish Festival during the weekend of Crown
Tourney. The empahsis on NTIF is to promote a love of Celtic music in
general. It has been brought up with the managers and cordinators that our
demo was more Anglo/Saxon in nature. I fear that if the BoD for NTIF agrees
that we did not fit in with the ambience of the festival, we will be
cancelled. I am trying very hard to keep them from cancelling our demo next

Thank you for your help!

  Sir Richard ap Morgan, who has email but I can't locate his address right
  off -- Mari will have his email if you write her.

Well, Mistress Gunnora beat me to the punch. Hopefully, between my comments
and hers (Excellent response to the usage of 'Celt', Mistress) you can see
that nudity and armor both had their place among those races sometimes
labeled as Celt.
