Great First Weekend at TRF
Our first weekend out at the Texas Renaissance Festival was fantastic! Our audience is growing by leaps and bounds despite the fact that we have only three shows a day. Speaking of which, our last performance is at 2:30pm at Raven's Bend. So make sure you get out there early.

If you're looking for the coolest stage, I'd say be at our 10:30 show at Mockingbird Gazebo. It's a great stage, there's lots of seating, and it's my personal favorite stage. Some come out and join us!

The weather was pretty durn hot and humid for the weekend, but we bore it well. Even danced the Karabushka at the Maypole. Oh, and our Feast Hall performance was cancelled due to lack of time between shows.

This weekend, the weather is looking pretty good. Saturday should be the best. Nice and cool weather with a small chance of rain on Sunday. If it does rain, you can come out and sing "Bright Side of Life" with us as we huddle in a shop.
Top 40 Celtic Bands
Through my Celtic MP3s Music Magazine, I've been compiling a list of Celtic bands that people are searching for. The list is growing every day. But right now, I have completed the Celtic Music Top 40 Charts. We're doing pretty good on that list too.

Texas Renaissance Festival Firework Highlights

Sunday, we were invited to perform at an exclusive Feast Hall show at the Texas Renaissance Festival for the owner's of the faire. It was brief, just two songs. And as we were waiting to pick up our badges, we were invited to one amazing performance...

Picture it. It's around 9pm. The stars are out in full-force in the Plantersville countryside. Bright lights are shining down on the jousting field. Across the field is the King's Grandstand. On that stand are two dots. That's us. We're playing music into some microphones. Then Ka-Boom! The firework display begins!

Yes, we played some of our instrumental favorites (and "Ducats" too) while dozens of fireworks exploded all around us in one fantastic display of art. It was amazing!

Unfortunately, we won't be performing on the grandstand this year (there won't even be a firework show). But you can catch us, three times a day at the world's largest Renaissance faire, the Texas Renaissance Festival, starting this weekend until November 17th.
