Bony Mountain Festival -over for another year!
What amazing weather we had-beautiful balmy nights-our artists all went so well. Our Bush Balladeers- our Celtic Dancers- Runaway Dixie- Warwick Pipe Thistle Band- our sound crew -everyone said sound was magic! It always is excellent here, no surprise there, always have a brilliant sound crew. No firedrums this year was dissapointing- but a total fire ban is pretty hard to ignore- we totally understand that. It surely is Spring-the birds are going every which way- the Magnolia is blooming-my jasmine is blooming- fruit trees-have blossom- a magic time - but we sure do need rain! very very dry.

The Celtic Connection and our family history.
It surely is a strong one! my Mothers family were The Hungerfords, a very influencial family in British History. Much to my surprise ! our illustrious ancestors built a Castle known as (Farleigh Hungerford Castle) back in 1370 .Sir Thomas Hungerford built this medieval Castle & its a long story but they lived there for over 300 years! Some of them fought with the Kings at the battle of Argincourt, some of them followed Cromwell & met their demise! Sir Thomas was the very first speaker of the house of commons in the British Parliment! It is a very colourful & well documented history. It is described as the most significant Medieval Castle in England as it is at Somerset ,the actual family crypt contains the marble effigys of the two Original Hungerfords! And I do intend to research it well & put a lot of it into songs & poetry. Another big project! but one I will enjoy with the help of cousins who are also into this sort of thing!
