Journeying to the Bitterroot Scottish Irish Festival 2014

I am sitting in a lovely little house near the festival in Hamilton, MT. I’m curled in am armchair with my laptop, warming up with a cup of coffee, and thinking about all you lovely people who may chance to this bit of blogosphere. The view out the window right now….IMG_0048

It has been a cold, wet morning here in the Bitterroot Valley. We played a set at 10am and though my brain knew what to do, my fingers could hardly perform those cuts and rolls on the jigs! Somehow, we brought Portland winter weather with us (not sure how that happened?!).

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Our trip started off on Thursday in hot and dry area of Oregon, where we visited with visited with friends.

Prosser Scottish Fest 2014

Prosser Scottish Fest 2014

We spent a delightful day playing at the Prosser Scottish Fest and Highland Games in the Yakima Valley. Thanks to all you folks who attended! I loved the atmosphere of this festival! It was cool to meet another Portland band, the Sons of Malarkey (sonsofmalarkey.com) while there. The most exciting and unique moment of day was the anvil launch, where an anvil was powerfully launched upwards, spinning through the air, directly after the National Anthem!

On Our Way to Prosser

What a beautiful day for a drive as we head up to play at the Prosser Scottish Fest in Washington! We drove past the magnificent Columbia river and now are winding our way through the Yakima Valley.

This will be our first time at the Prosser Scottish Fest and we’re looking forward to it tomorrow! We’ll be playing on the main music stage at 10:45 am and 3:30 pm. Prosser, here we come!
