Greetings, Lord Stephen

Loch Ruadh held our first Titled Bard competition last year at our Lughnasad event in August.

The winner of the competition was a young man named Eric Mac an Ghabhann, who has not been playing long, but amazed everyone with his voice and the quality of his presentation.

The competition is slated to be held at this year's Lughnasad, againt o be held in August.

In Service,
