Delighted to return to beautiful Perry County for a concert this afternoon at the invitation of the Perry County Council of the Arts! 2-Part Program---Part 1: One of my great musical and historical passions concerns the Scottish Jacobite Risings, and I am delighted to be invited to bring my hour-long first-person dramatic presentation to the library tonight as conjunction with the "Outlander" celebration here. The library will be closed to all but those who are here for the program, and I would love it if you can be with us! "I will share the fate o' my Prince, and so shall every man over whom God and Nature has given me power!" Sit back and enjoy the Scottish Jacobite experience, which actually begins with the abdication of James II and the invasion of the Dutch Prince William of Orange in 1688, and hear the spirited songs which help to illustrate the period of the exiled Stuarts and the many attempts by the loyal Highlanders to help them regain their throne. After "The 45", life in the Highlands changed, and changed utterly---the landscape created by the government destruction on all things Highland is still visible to this very day. Part 2 (after intermission): A concert of some great Scottish and Irish music. Would love to see you there!

My Tribute to the Irish Brigade is for the History Club of this community, but it is public and I would love to see you there! Email for info: vtdiane@comcast.net "The Story of the Irish Brigade! Journey in song and story through the Civil War guided by heroic Irish-American Capt. James Haggerty of the 69th New York State Militia, which so boldly fought in the First Battle of Bull Run in July 1861. Charlie Zahm, renowned traditional balladeer and multi-instrumentalist, recreates in first-person the Donegal immigrant, who rose through the ranks of the state militia system in New York, and took the field knowing full-well he and his men were watched by both the United States (the land of his adoption) and Ireland (the land of the exile's birth). Haggerty gave his last full measure of devotion to his adopted land at Bull Run, and this program features Zahm as our guide Haggerty leading the audience through the heroic story of the Irish Brigade, formed in part by the men of the old 69th, as they covered themselves in glory in every major battle of the Army of the Potomac."
