This was also our goodbye party to good friends, Paul and Ros Shepherd, who are moving to Spain soon. Ros and Paul have been HUGE supporters of Celtic and Scottish music in Houston for years, and their home is affectionately called "the house for wayward musicians." Every year they throw a hell of a Hogmanay party for new year's eve that ends with a parade around the neighborhood at midnight. Good stuff and good memories! The band hopes to be able to visit them in Spain as part of a tour in the near future and lead the parade there as well.
We'd like to thank Missy Best for holding down the sales table for us, and of course McGonigel's Mucky Duck for having us back. A great time was had by all and we look forward to doing it again in the near future.
