Ya don't have to be Scottish

to enjoy going to any Scottish Highland Games & Festivals. Always good entertainment, superb food vendors and fun, fun people oh and a few good beers to be had!!! Happy to say we dined of true British fish and chips YUMMM...

Read in the paper about the Kern County Scottish Festival.......there ya go.
We were fortunate enough to see the opening ceremonies as we entered the gates, by that I mean this pipe band marched in right behind us.

Mr Doodles and I have always been fond of the Black Watch Scottish Pipe Bands and have seen them in concert many times. How fortunate for us we had the opportunity to hear something new, well new to us. Introduced to a group called the
Wicked Tinkers I don't think there's another band quite like the Wicked Tinkers in existence. Super-high-energy, with a huge bagpipe/drums/sometimes didgeridoo sound, they add life into traditional folk music that sometimes lacks energy and innovation. It's impossible to sit still while listening to their music.......cause these boys do not lack energy. They were certainly worth the price of admission - plus we sat thru two of their shows.

The above photo shows just three of the group.

A beautiful spring afternoon....good time had by all.
