How quickly this year has flown by. There’s the usual end of year mad rush but we can all look forward to a little “down time” over the Christmas break.
What a wonderful weekend we all had at Outlandish 2018. As they say, a picture paints a thousand words so, throughout this edition, you will find photographs from the weekend to whet your appetite. So many people asked when we’ll do the next one. Watch this space for an announcement in due course!
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.
