City of Orange
On March 15th, Dennis and Paula performed for an "Evening of Celtic Spirituality" at the Center for Spirituality in Orange, California. It was a wonderful alternative St.Patrick's celebration. Each year it features the best of Celtic prayer, song, dance, art and is topped off with a grand feed of scones, sodabread and tea. This year's theme was the "Contemplative Celt in Action". There was a keynote by Father Eamon O'Gorman, followed by dancing by the Doireann Maoileidigh School of Irish Dance, a program of story and song by Dennis and Paula and traditional singer Sister Dolores Maguire.
On February 14th Dennis performed at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress at the Anaheim Convention Center. He played for Christopher Walker's Celtic Mass, singing the air Ag Chriost an Siol, and then did a concert in the main arena with Fr. Liam Lawton in a program called A Celtic Story. Music from Dennis and Paula's recordings Abbess and St. Patrick were featured. Liam performed cuts from his new recording Light the Fire.
