Upcoming event expected to warm up the winter

January 3, 2018 by  

The Mid-Winter Celtic Festival is taking place in Regina for two days next month in celebration of Celtic music.

The festival is set to start off with a music session at the Knotted Thistle Pub on February 9, beginning at 7:30 PM, for which admission is free. This will then be followed by a day of musical workshops ending up with a ceilidh (music, dancing and storytelling).

The workshops are being taught by Troy MacGillivray and Fred Morrison. Topics will be on the fiddle and on woodwind instruments such as small pipes. Each workshop costs $30. There are combination tickets available too; the ceilidh and one workshop is $50 and the ceilidh plus two workshops costs $75.

The ceilidh will take place beginning at 7:30 pm on February 10 and costs $30 per person. There will be performances from artists such as Maire Rankin, Troy and Kendra MacGillivray, Wendy MacIsaac and The City of Regina Pipe Band. In addition, there will be a silent auction and a ‘Champion Highlander’ presentation.

Organizers of events such as these often contact local stationery printing companies to provide advertising materials like flyers that can be easily distributed in the city.

The Mid-Winter Celtic Festival will be held at The Exchange from February 9 to 10. For the most up-to-date information about this event, call 306-584-2159.
