We’ve been busy preparing for the Saltwater Celtic Music Festival at beautiful Thomas Point Beach in Brunswick, Maine on July 14-15. Highlights will include, naturally, a diverse roster of internationally renowned Celtic musicians as well as a sand beach, manicured grounds, superior food vendors and Celtic Merchant Mart. Kevin O’Hara will return to emcee on Sunday and Maeve Gilchrist will serve in that role on Saturday. Michael Shaughnessy will be joining us as Saltwater’s first Artist in Residence. The Frost Gully Session Tent will be back as will the Byrnes Irish Pub family, pouring for those over 21! New this year is a 2nd stage for Gaelic song, dance and other workshops. Saltwater Satellite Events will occur at leading Maine venues, including Maine Maritime Museum, Skye Theatre, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Unity College and others, during the week prior to Saltwater. All of this is going to add up to lots of FUN. See you at Saltwater!
