The 2017 Entertainment is already looking to be a promising and memorable ensemble! Here is just a sneak peak of what this summer entails!  

2017 CRAIC Show Promo for Web - Low Res

RETURNING! The CRAIC Show

The CRAIC Show is an intense & wildly entertaining act, made up of four international travelers who, in 1541, were banded together on an ancient battlefield. This unique merging of music from far away lands brings a sound that is unlike any other. Watching the group switch and interchange instruments throughout the show is something to see, songs are often started on bagpipes and ended with the entire group on percussions. Ever-changing and constantly blending styles, The CRAIC Show is always bringing a fresh, high energy blend of World Medieval Music. www.TheCraicShow.com
