Below is the 2017 Entertainment that provided fun memories for us! Stay tuned for announcements for our 2018 Entertainment Lineup!
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
