Enter the Haggis!

Rockin' the bagpipes

Last night, Gail and I went to see a concert at the Scranton Cultural Center: Enter the Haggis*, a Celtic/Rock/Bluegrass fusion band. It was a last-minute decision, but tickets were available and inexpensive. It was a great show! The band played in the ballroom rather than the theatre, so seating was informal - around tables with refreshments available. (Bubbly, brewed refreshments - it is St. Pat's weekend, after all.)

Gail stayed up late to post the pictures and write about the show, I fell asleep - TGIF!

* Haggis is a Scottish dish consisting of a mixture of the minced heart, lungs, and liver of a sheep or calf mixed with suet, onions, oatmeal, and seasonings and boiled in the stomach of the slaughtered animal. This is considered by Scots to be not only a proud tradition, but actually edible.
