Celtic Spring

There's nothing like authentic Irish fiddle music and step dancing to help you celebrate St. Patrick's Day. We saw the Catholic homeschool family called "Celtic Spring" perform at Benedictine College last week. All six siblings (age 23 to 9) play the fiddle as well as dance together! The concert was mesmerizing for all of us, and it was fun to meet them afterwards! Young Aidon is just smaller than my twins, Sean was the most talkative, and Mary gave stories and advice from a mother's perspective. We've been listening to their CD ever since. (I sent their website to Uncle Clint in hopes he might see their Phoenix concert this weekend.)

Hi Candise and everyone!

We had such a fantastic time at Benedictine College, both doing the show and seeing the school! (We will be speaking highly of the college to everyone on our area!)
It was wonderful to meet you... it's great running into other family bands, especially Catholic homeschool families! :) Is it right that you also play Celtic fiddle music?
I saw your blog on our show. Thanks for doing that!
We look forward to seeing you at future events!
God Bless you and joyous feast of the Annunciation!

Elizabeth, Celtic Spring
