The Devil's Tailors play the Royal Mile Pub

We had the great honor of being invited to play the Royal Mile Pub for the party celebrating the transition to its new owner, Michael Moore. Michael and the Royal Mile sponsored the fiddle tent at the Virginia Scottish Games this year, and we were thrilled to return the favor by playing the party in his honor.

Also thanks to Barbara Saliunas (who came away from the Potomac Valley Scottish Fiddle Competition with an arm full of prizes just last Sunday!) for filling in for Susanne, who couldn't make it.

We had a blast, and the audience and pub loved us, and really look forward to playing there again in the future!

The Virginia Scottish Games

Two shows at the Virginia Scottish Games left us ready for more. We shared the stage with some great acts, Dileab Phriseil, The Potomac Valley Scottish Fiddle Club, Terpsichore, Peat & Barley, The Homespun Ceilidh Band, Becky Ross w/ Liz Donaldson, and the teriffic trio of Andrew Dodds, Liam Andrews, and Collier Hyams.

Saturday was the wilder gig, with a tent flowing to capacity and more; but we had a great crowd Sunday as well. Just someone remind me not to wear ankle socks with the kilt ever again.

Pictures over on our page on Facebook, and possibly some video soon!
