Happy Hogmanay and other Scottish news!

Happy New Year, everyone!  And let me wish you all an extremely belated Happy Hogmanay as well.  As is traditional, I celebrated Hogmanay this year by attending a brilliant Capitol Hill party, which culminated (inevitably) in the lot of us marching down 15th Avenue, brandishing flags of the Celtic nations, playing bagpipes, invading the local pubs/coffeeshops and compelling their denizens to sing "Flower Of Scotland" with us. This year I was privileged to carry the large Irish flag in the procession, which I managed to do without disgracing myself/injuring anyone. Good times.

In further Scottish news, I'll be flying to Naples, Florida this week to perform at the St. Andrew's Society's Robert Burns Supper, which is always a pleasure and a privilege! (When I received the invitation, my first thought was..."Florida in January? Nah, that doesn't sound enjoyable at all..." *shivering in the Seattle cold*)
