  • Irish Connections Festival and Crooked Still

    June 11th, 2006
    dancing  [html]
    Fun day yesterday. Went to the Irish Connections Festival in Canton. An outdoor festival, and in the rain. Not really ideal. My shoes got progressively more soaked as the day went on, until my feet felt like they were simultaneously freezing from the cold and rotting from the damp. General badness. Near the end, though, I thought to look for a bathroom with a hot-air hand drier to use on the shoes and socks. That was amazing; like putting on clothes right out of the dryer.

    Yup; warm dry socks was the most important aspect of the festival. There were other fun things too, though. Scrambled Six performed near the beginning; Rosie's last time with the group. There was an 'introductory Irish set dancing event' which turned out to be Kerry Sets. Basically polka in square dance formation. We'd learned them a while ago at NEFFA and our set was eight contra dancers. Much fun.

    Later on Crooked Still played. They were excellent, and also quite entertaining to watch. We had front row seats. When they finished, though, there didn't seem to be much happening at the festival for a while so we went off to Concord to catch the second half of the 'alternative music' dance. Lots of fun. And singing tonight.
