Saturday and Sunday, June 26 and 27, 11am–10pm for one weekend in late June each year, Lancaster County’s Amish Country becomes the Celtic Capital of the United States as 100s of musicians, dancers, craftsmen, Scottish clans, Irish societies and rugged athletes from across North America and Europe gather for the Celtic Fling & Highland Games. The Faire’s 35 acres will be covered in kilts, cabers, officially sanctioned Irish Dance and Highland Games competitions, border collie sheepherding, and Celtic crafts, food and music. Each festival day features over 50 musical sets, competitions and demonstrations. Admission price is $25.95 per adult and $9.95 per child.

My wife and son and I had a wonderful time at the Fling. I love Celtic music and I know that the Fling made fans out of my family. All the music was great but I especially enjoyed the artistry of Elizabeth Cary and Gary Mazzu. I had heard of Elizabeth's reputation as a fine fiddler and was delighted to discover her exquisite singing. Gary's accompnaiments were right on target.

I was shocked when Gary said that he and Elizabeth hadn't recorded any CDs together, so I sent an e-mail to Rounder Records about them. I sure hope Rounder recruits them because they should be nationally known.

Thank you
