What’s better than getting together with your friends to dance on a random Thursday night?
Having the likes of the Iron Hill Vagabonds stopping by! 🙂 Coming from New York, and heading to the Central Kentucky Celtic Festival & Highland Games, Mark and Ehrich, our favorite vagabonds, hung out with a few of us Dante’s folks and played some tunes. Fortunately, I had my camera handy (bonus – the battery wasn’t dead, and the memory wasn’t full), so I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy!
Mark and Ehrich Gauvin can be found touring the country, playing and singing at festivals and lucky for us, for friends. 😉 Our paths first crossed in the summer of 2010 during the Kentucky Renaissance Festival.
“Whaaaa? Belly dancers in the house?” Meali, Mark and Ehrich’s dear canine, gratiously took the dog-rubs that we handed out. We only had to slide her out of the way once, when she thumped to the middle of our dance space during a choreo run-through.
Mark chilled out in the hammock while D took in the tunes.
Ehrich played accordian while Britney sat for a brief spell. Even the folks next door came out to their porch to enjoy the music as it fell across the neighborhood.
Master Pokes was busy creating original steampunk jewelry that will be for sale at the Saturday’s Time Traveler’s Ball at the Southgate House, during which Britney will be belly dancing. Feathers, clockwork, beads, and tools spread across the table and came to life before our very eyes.
Me and Laura, chillin’ like Bob Dylan and enjoying this gift of an evening with the Vagabonds, Britney, Pokes, and my own little guy. Oh – and Meali, too. Good dog.
So, that’s it for amateur photojournalism hour. 🙂 Don’t forget, you can see the Iron Hill Vagabonds at the Celtic Festival this weekend, and see the jewelry that’s available from Master Pokes at the Time Traveler’s Ball on Saturday night.
Until next time,
