Shaun That KelticDead Guy
KelticDead Music Lecture-Story



Central Standard Time



Patrick Young
1810 Stetson Way
Allen, Texas 75002

Want to know why the craft of making "Celtic Whistles" almost died out in 1953, and how the Devil got into Rock 'n' Roll music?
Patrick O'Shaughnessey Young will guide the audience through a special KelticDead Music "Broadside" presentation 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7th, at the Allen Public Library as a lecture-type, "Bardic" storytelling event. In his "movie-like" presentation Shaun will use selections from his on-line, KelticDead "Broadside" stories and folk tunes, to provide a better understanding about who the Celts are, and how Celtic folk-music resonates in our current American experience. I want to thank the Allen Public Library and Civic Auditorium in my home town of Allen, Texas for letting me present my "hobby" project. Hope to see you there, and if you can't make it out, you can see it from home from the links provided below.
