Samhain

We had our eighth Samhain event this weekend. We arrived in time for the audience of Their Excellencies Titus and Kateline. Provided a little background music for that and then went downstairs and did an impromptu jam session with Heather the Incorrigible and her friend Catherine, playing Irish flute and pennywhistle, while I played harp and bodhran. The feast was next, including a roast peacock that was carried in and presented to the high table, and covered in it's own feathers. The bird was skinned with the feathers intact, and they were placed over the roasted bird. Very impressive. Feast was followed by Baronial court, did a little music for that, and then a harp, bodhran and fiddle jam with Rachel ni Dunne afterwards.
