VARF Wrap Up Onward to Montana!

The Rogues recently completed our first full run at the Virginia Renaissance Festival at the beautiful Lake Anna Winery in Spotsylvania, VA.  Thanks to anyone who came out to the show to see us.  It was great seeing you again, as well as working with the VARF staff and cast again.  The weather was unusual with 3 weekends of rainy, chilly weather followed by steamy, sunburning heat for the last two weekends, but we all survived, and even performed a concert on the last Saturday night at the Lake Anna Winery which became an unofficial cast party.  Brad Howard, aka Fletcher Moone of the Pyrates Royale, emceed the event and did a fantastic job. 

We had two guest drummers filling in during the run for Mark who could only be there 2 of the weekends -  Adam Wyatt of the Shamrogues and Meaghan Deakins Fuller.  Thanks to them for helping out, and thanks to the festival for having us back this year and we're hoping to be performing in future years at the Virginia Renaissance Festival.

Look for The Rogues next in Miles City, Montana on June 24-25.   We're headlining the Miles City Caledonian Summer Highland Gathering held in Pumping Plant Park, 67 Water Plant Road, Miles City.  It's a free show, and the first time we've been there since 2000 when we performed at the Miles City Scottish Games.  Friday night the 24th is a pub crawl and the 25th is the event itself, featuring Scottish sporting events and an evening concert.  Everything Saturday kicks off at 1:00.  If you're anywhere near Montana come check it out.  More info at  Hope to see you there!
