This Saturday, August 23rd, McCarthyizm heads down to the southern tier of NY for the annual Jamestown Regional Celtic Festival. It’s held on the beautiful banks of Chautauqua Lake, Lakeside Park, on Water Street in Mayville, NY. You want an early show? You got it! We’ll be at the Beer & Wine Garden Stage from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm but the festivities, including Highland Games, pipe bands and Celtic vendors, go until 10, so stick around with us for the day. Caber toss, anyone??
As you may remember, a quick-hitting summer storm cancelled our Bidwell show back in July. But the good folks at the Elmwood Village Assocation were able to extend their season to reschedule us. The show is tomorrow, August 19, 7pm-9pm. For those who haven’t been there, the concert takes place on the grassy, tree-lined parkway on Bidwell near Elmwood Ave. Great way to spend a summer evening. See y’all there.
Yes, on Saturday Aug 16 it will be the 30th year in a row that plaid-kilted burly men will be drinking beer, eating haggis, marching to pipe bands and dancing to the some kickin Celtic music at the former Amherst Museum – now known as the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village, because apparently that’s sooo much easier to say ; ). McCarthyizm headlines the Scottish Festival this year, playing from 3 pm-5 pm, leading up to the closing ceremonies. But all the fun starts at 10 am so have your morning Irish Coffee and get over there early to take in all the activities. Gonna be a good one!
