Celtic News October 2018

Welcome to the October edition. As always, I’ve been surprised by how much there is to tell you about in this edition. I have included a different item this time, with a review of “Rogue Folk”, from Sadie and Jay. If this inspires any of you to put pen to paper and contribute your own review of a recent release, please do send it to me.

Outlandish 2018 Outlander Fan Gathering takes place next weekend so it is now too late for you to buy a ticket. I am looking forward to this new event. It will be fun, with quite a few surprises planned for the lucky attendees. There will be a detailed report and photographs in next month’s Celtic News.

Unfortunately I also have some sad news this month.

Well, we’re finally in Spring. The trees are putting on their green leaves and it is getting definitely warmer. There are lambs and calves everywhere you look. I really love this time of year and, at home, am looking forward to the first fresh spring vegetables in the garden.

It is, of course, still very dry here as it is all over New South Wales and we are madly performing our rain dances. In support of those wonderful people who are supporting drought-ridden areas, here is information about three events raising money for drought relief.

I think that I will write very little this month. There’s so much news and information that my head is spinning. Importantly, don’t forget that you only have until 31st August to apply for inclusion in the 2019 Australian Celtic Festival.

What a great night the new-look Annual Tartan Day Dinner was. To give you the flavour of the evening, here’s a photo of Lara and James Gresham in front of one of three of the beautiful open fires. Lara is the 2018 Australian Celtic Festival Committee Chairman. The dinner was held at the Highland Restaurant which is located at the New England Motor Lodge. This venue will also feature during our Outlandish 2018 Outlander Fan Gathering weekend, re-badged for the evening as Lallybroch.

No sooner is the Australian Celtic Festival weekend over than we start again. I am in awe of all the Volunteers who work incredibly hard to provide entertainment, fun and interest to our vibrant region.

There are two entirely new Festivals to tell you about this month with the Vintage Rose Festival in Glen Innes and the Peter Allen Festival in Tenterfield both holding inaugural events. Of course, there are updates for all your favourites as well. AND there is an exciting announcement from Outlandish 2018 Outlander Fan Gathering.
