Unexpected Pleasure

My typist has been quite ill these last couple of days, and is now, of course, packing for her annual ski vacation. So, when she logged me in today, it was really only to be for a brief afternoon check on the mail and any urgent messages that needed my attention.

However, as I looked through the post, which has finally caught up to me in Winterfell Anodyne on my Isle of Skye, I received a call across the æther from Charlene Truedeau. What a pleasant surprise to have my old friend call me out of the blue.

"Celtic Concert going on over here in Zepplin. Join me?"

"Well sure." I said. My typist needed a short break anyway. So off I went on Char's chariot.

The band is called LabGraal, and I learned a bit about them as I listened to the live music. They were very very good. The band are based in Italy and play primarily Celtic music, but also do work from around the globe. They were talking about their new CD due out in just a couple of weeks - if all goes well - featuring African music.

I have to say that this is one of the best live music performances that I have heard in SL. I will be happy to attend another of their gigs. And perhaps I might convince them to perform as/at one of my events. :)

The crowd: cheering, dancing, and listening to the wonderful music.

Our hostess, Charlene Trudeau

I would direct you to their various ætheric outposts for more information (do brush up on your Italian, though).

I thoroughly enjoyed myself listening to the music and talking quietly with Charlene for a bit.
Once I made it back to the castle, I took a few shots of TotalLunar's progress on the build. I am pleased as punch. Whisky punch at that. :)

An impressive-looking ancestral castle!
