Magical Strings
Philip and Pam Boulding have been recording and touring since 1980. Centered around the Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer their music and stories have the effect of opening hearts to a forgotten world, well-veiled by the bustle and trappings of modern life.
Golden Bough
With Pristine vocal harmonies, backed by
an array of acoustic instruments, this trio of modern day minstrels hasbeen bringing their music to folk fans the world over since 1980.
To date they have  released over  30 recordings of traditional and original songs


Jim Hinton
Jim has been performing folk music
for over 40 years. His knowledge as a
 folklorist and his ability as a storyteller add depth and relevance to his performances. Jim is also a talented writer of original and traditionally inspired songs.

Cheryl Hinton

(Museum Anthropologist)

Cheryl will give an illustrated lecture on the tribes of Alaska and Canada and how they parallel the cultures of the Celtic lands. Tribal songs, dance and stories are intimately connected to the human experience.

Sam Keator

(The fellow on the left)

 Sam has been teaching the culture of the

Celtic Ceili for over 2 decades. A Ceili is defined as a social event at which there is Scottish or Irish folk music and singing, traditional dancing and storytelling. Sam will

be teaching us the history of the Ceili,

with an emphasis on the Ulster Ceili.
