Four sets of Celtic Harp at the Festival

Aoife and I have been invited to the Celtic Festival and Highland Games to be held this year in Davenport, Iowa. I'll be playing, singing and storytelling, while giant guys in plaid skirts throw heavy things about.Don't ask - it's Scottish. ( ;-}>But since it's a pan-Celtic festival I'll be playing some Irish, Cymraeg and Manx tunes as well as Scottish, of course.Come on out! Listen to the tunes and stories, and save me a beer for after my sets.  Mine's a Guinness, please.
