The Grand Celtic Music Tour

I had a very enjoyable two hours attending The Grand Celtic Music Tour this afternoon at McCabe Theatre on the Campus of Saint Mary's Academy and College. It was one of the most enjoyable Sunday afternoons I have had in a long time, made even more enjoyable as the entire Grand Celtic Music Tour are musicians from the Parish.  Headlined by Mr. Patrick Werick, an accomplished multi-instrument musician in his own right (and an excellent MC!), we were taken on a musical tour that stretched from Ireland to Brittany; from Scotland to Spain to Kansas City, MO and back to Ireland again, complete with an Irish Dancer! The musicians were marvelous and it never ceases to amaze the level of talent that encompasses the students at the Academy and College and within their Families. Father McBride (and his guitar) with some of the young college men took part as well. Kudos to all involved!

 I copied the musical program below and will attempt to post a video, when and if it becomes available and if permission is received. (My apologies for the picture quality...I had it folded in my pocket.)
