The autoharp received an extra note of praise last weekend when Marc Gunn came in second for Best Strings in the 25th Annual Austin Music Awards for his musical ability on the autoharp. Check out Autoharp Radio to hear more great autoharp music.
The Brobdingnagian Bards enjoyed several brilliant performances at Things Celtic in Austin. Hundreds of people turned up for the only family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Austin thanks to the Anne Marshall who ran the event sponsored by Things Celtic and the Austin Celtic Association. Hope you had a Happy St Patrick’s Day in Austin or wherever you were in the world.
The Brobdingnagian Bards once again managed to sell out of CDs at Things Celtic where their CDs are in high demand.
If you are looking for anything Celtic in Austin, then there is one place to go first. That place is Things Celtic.
Things Celtic is an awesome Celtic store that has served Central Texas since 1999. They feature some of the finest Celtic gifts from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, and Celtic artists in America. The show is open and the owner, Lanora, and the staff are just Amazing!
I shop there regularly. I have bought books, CDs, Celtic jewelry, a sporran, my Clan Gunn kilt, gifts for family and friends, and lots more from Things Celtic. I play a solo show there about every three months or so, plus the occasional Brobdingnagian Bards performance is there. I also studied Gaelic there, went to Irish song sessions, and sometimes, I just go to hang out. There’s always something fun happening at Things Celtic.
The store is open from 10am to 6pm Monday through Saturday and noon to 5pm on Sunday. You can find them at 1806 West 35th Street in the heart of Austin, Texas.
