Come and celebrate the start of Harvest with Celtic music, dancing, drinking, costumes, interdisciplinary art and our wonderful community!
Get your kilts on! Don’t have a kilt? How about some laurel leaves? Harvest colours? Face paint? Masks? There will be a prize for the best costumed Harvest King and Harvest Queen!
The evening starts at 7:00 pm with a short lesson on Scottish country dancing- to get the Ceilidh started-
Next, Brian Walsh will be our bard and tell us the story of the Trials of Tailtu, the foster mother of Lugh, to whom the festival of Lughnasadh is dedicated.
Contemporary Canadian female poets will perform an immersive sounding experience that allegorically and aurally illustrate the trials of Tailtu, and that womens’ voices don’t always have to sound pretty in order to be beautiful. a.rawlings will be joining the performance from Iceland via Skype; also Penn Kemp will be joining us in this performance from London Ontario!
We are also proud to present the amazing, aeclectic and kilted Celtic pagan heavy metal band: Battlesoul
