It’s Time For The Greenville Scottish Games!

May 3, 2014 by

The Greenville Highland Games are calling and Aye must go!

Join me in Greenville, South Carolina on Memorial Day weekend, May 23-24, 2014,  for some awesome Scottish games, events and the world’s BEST KILT CONTEST! 

 

 To quote Dee Benedict, Board chair and Wild Eyed Southern Celtic woman:

In the finest tradition of marauding Scots, we are taking over Downtown Greenville and points north.  We are re-branding the whole kit and caboodle into one fabulous word, GALLABRAE, which is a mash up of two Gallic words meaning “Something bold and daring” and “beautiful highlands.”  That’s us!  Bold and daring Scots in the beautiful Highlands of the Upstate!

Some of the EVENTS:
5/23 Great Scot! Parade 6:00 pm
5/23 The Bagpipe Challenge! 7:00 pm
5/23 The Ceilidh! 7:00 pm
5/24 Demonstrators 8:30 am
5/24 The Greenville Scottish Games 8:30 am
5/24 The British Car Show 9:30 am

5/24 Opening Ceremonies 10:30 am
5/24 Celtic Jam 6:30 pm
11/16 Miss Greenville Scottish Games 7:00 pm

I will be hosting Rocking the Kilt, a new and fun contest to crown the man who who rocks our Celtic socks off in his kilt!

Open to ALL men in a kilt, between ages 18 and 100–claymores and dirks allowed, but not required, y’all.

A Big Thank You To Atlanta’s King of Kilts

Dec 1, 2013 by

I’m a bit late on this–where does my time go?!– but I’d like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Brad Beaton, owner of AtlantaKilts.com for all of his help and support as we prepared the new Kilted Up 2014 calendar.  Not only did he pose for our calendar ( June’s handsome piper), he graciously loaned us several beautiful kilts and accessories for models who didn’t own one yet .

Brad is a skilled bagpiper, a member of the North Atlanta Pipes and Drums, and an expert in Scottish Highland dress–he KNOWS tartans!  If you need a kilt for the holiday season, Brad is the man who can get you nattily attired for your event.   He and his expert staff have an extensive selection of traditional tartans–heavenly–for you to choose from, whether you want to purchase or rent, along with all accessories.  If you have your own clan tartan or a unique design, AtlantaKilts.com can weave it for you, and can ship your kilt to any state in the US.

Click over to Brad’s FB page and give him a like–please let him know WESCelt sent you!

FYI, Brad’s kilt in this pic is the lovely (and not often seen) Isle of Skye tartan.

Competitors at the Argyllshire Gathering at Oban in 1950. The Skinny, young looking fellow third from the right is the legendary piper John D Burgess at 16 years of age. That year he won the Gold Medal at the Argyllshire Gathering and the Northern Meeting at Inverness on his first attempt, a feat that has gone down in piping lore and is unlikely to be repeated.
