Please bring a folding chair as seating is limited. Also, bring some water or a non-alcoholic beverage to wet your whistle. Please kindly observe the no-smoking policy for the benefit of the singers. Everyone who comes will have a chance to sing. Any song that is Irish, Scottish, or otherwise Celtic will do. Songs tend to be solo round-robin, but singalongs are great too. A cappella singing is preferred in the Irish tradition. Just bring your voice. You may also bring a guitar or other instrument if you prefer to accompany yourself. # Wednesday, March 8, 2006 Austin Celtic Association general meeting Bennigan's 301 Barton Springs Road (next door to the Embassy Suites, facing the Hyatt) Austin, TX 512/472-7902 7 PM Open to the public Program: Irish trad music duo Gan Fidil with guest fiddler Heather Gilmer # Thursday, March 9, 2006 The Harp and Shamrock Society of Texas Beethoven Home (off of South Alamo) San Antonio, TX Phone 210-656-2666 for information # Sunday, March 12, 2006 St. Practice Day B.D.
