Weather may be rainy, but spirits were high

I could easily say it was another beautiful weekend at Texas Renaissance Festival, though some might not agree. Yeah, it rained all morning Saturday and looked to be dismal weekend, but even with the rain, it was a blast.

We played our first two shows to a captive audience as we and a group of other folk huddled on the Warfside Gazebo Stage to entertain while they waited out the storm. "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" was, of course, a favorite on Saturday.

But it mostly cleared up in the afternoon leaving just a nice overcast of clouds in the sky. My boots may've been a bit too wet, but my heart was warmed with more and more returning patrons looking forward to our unique brand of Scottish and Irish pub songs.

Sunday was a bit more subdued as I had a wee sore throat, but with an occasional nap and then making time to enjoy the music of Queen Anne's Lace and The Shantyman, it turned out to be a lovely relaxing day.

Just three more weeks to go and the weather forecast is looking pretty decent so far. But if you want a BIG treat, come out this Saturday to our 4:30pm show when we'll have a brief opening act playing traditional Irish music on the flute but three teenage girls from Georgetown, TX. The pride of these for me is my sister Hannah!

See ye there!
