We are always blessed with new friendships on our journeys, and this one proved especially fruitful. We were happy to share our stage at The Smoky Mountain Highland Festival with Raven and Red and the Carolina Ceili Band. An unexpected joy was meeting the family band, The Celtic Martins and join in with them during their portion of the Saturday night Ceilidh and then again during their set on Sunday morning. That’s where we had the pleasure of meeting Colin Grant Adams as well. One of the biggest blessings, though, was meeting Chuck Cooper, festival photographer who hung out with us often throughout the weekend. Thanks to all who made the weekend so wonderful and we can’t wait until our paths cross again! Thanks again to Shane Page for these great shots!
