Spring Ceilidh

Silver Thistle hosted its annual Ceilidh (KAY-lee, Gaelic for Party) at Scholz’s Beer Garden on Sunday May 26! The weather was steamy and the crowd was….well, a crowd! The band performed some of its tried and true sets and tried out some new ones. Like a group Piobaireachd. There was a great bake sale with Lemon Bars, Cream-filled oatmeal-chocolate-chip cookies, cupcakes, shortbread and (a New York favorite) Black and Whites. There was a raffle held with prizes ranging from a lovely bottle of Scotch, a Disney’s Brave and Scottish book set for the wee ones, some gorgeous wine glasses (donated by Things Celtic) and a 2 night stay at a local vacation rental spot near Zilker Park. It was a great, laid-back afternoon full of piping and drumming. If you weren’t there, you missed a fun time! Hope to see you at the next Silver Thistle event!
