And so the event begins with Catherine Campbell representing the Ambassador of Ireland and the sponsors of the event being introduced by Hugo, Bass Drummer of the Saint Patrick’s Battalion. Welcome words from the UK Ambassador, Irish Ambassador, Municipal Government of Puerto Vallarta, etc.
First up a Mexico City Celtic Band called Shamrock. They play French, Scottish and Irish music. Nice sound check tune so far.
Great set, they also have an Irish Dancer as part of their group.
Up next are the ETS Pipes & Drums.
Big surprise Neil Dickie and Chrissy Crowly in an impromptu set #FIMC @FestivalCeltaMx
This was followed by Alba’s Edge from Boston. Celtic Jazz fusion. Nice!
