Mid-Winter Celtic Festival 2013
In 2013 the Festival was supported by Alexander Keith's [Labatts] and we also had some other great sponsors who helped oout with expenses, donations, and all kinds of "in kind" help. Friday night we had a performance at O'Hanlon's Pub for the after work crowd, and then later that night there was a music session at The Knotted Thistle Pub in the Travelodge. We had the SaskTel Community Stage at the Cornwall Centre Saturday afternoon, a session at O'Hanlon's Irish Pub, and then the Mid-Winter Ceilidh at The Exchange. The Ceilidh featured a performance by the band, and we had a hugely talented band featuring Saskatoon fiddler Karrnell, Jake Charron from Ontario on guitar and piano, bassist Daniel Koulack from Manitoba and Sarah Robinson, an Ottawa Valley stepdancer. They were joined for a few sets by Scott Benson and we also crowned a new Champion Highlander in a great contest featuring Ceilidh guests pitting their Scottish skills against one another.
