Having built the Celtic Music Feis website I was extremely excited to experience it in person. It’s an amazing event, with 30+ performers across 10 stages over the course of 6 days there are around 300 performances, along with workshops, battle of the bands, vendors and of course, lots of booze!

The first night was amazing, My friend Stefan Roland kicked it off at the Galway Bay Irish Pub in Ocean Shores, WA followed by 4 musicians.

3 of the following musicians are regular performers at the venue, Hank Cramer, Curlews Call and MAC, the 4th was a group that flew in from Japan, O’Jizo. I was especially excited to see them after learning about their back story and unique passion for Irish and Celtic music while I was doing research for building the festivals website.

They were amazing, everyone was. The music was fantastic and the people were full of spirits and having a wonderful time. The energy was infectious and intoxicating all at the same time.
