On September 9th Sherwood Forest Faire will open its faire grounds for another free-admission Festival of world-class Celtic Music and Highland Games, complete with Celtic Clan booths, handicrafts, several booths serving gourmet foods, and cold pints of ye favorite brews.

Camping will be available the night before and the night of the festival from 2pm Friday to 2pm Sunday, September 8th -10th. This year, in order to expand our musical line-up we will be charging $5 per person for camping. That price includes both Friday and Saturday nights.

Friday night Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem Pub will be open from 7pm until late with SEAN ORR”S CELTIC TEXAS playing from 8-11pm.

On Saturday we welcome back CLEGHORN, the father-son Celtic duo who last played at Sherwood Celtic Music Festival in 2014. We will also, of course, host BLAGGARDS on the Greenwoode Theatre Stage, where they have held reign every year since 2011. And SOLAR RAIN fire dancers will join Blaggards for their final set, and will perform a FINALE FIRE SHOW afterwards. THE JIG IS UP! will also be returning with their powerhouse of traditional Irish musical maestros. And the SAN ANTONIO PIPES AND DRUMS will bring us the sounds of the Highlands.

Also this we will be expanding the musical lineup to Sherwood Forest’s new pub the Lionheart Tavern! North Texas and Houston Irish School of Music will sponsor the Lionheart’s Stage with a wide range of Celtic Talent. SARAH COPUS, though yet to reach the age of 18, this multi-instrumentalist has already placed on the Billboard charts for Celtic music. NATHAN KENNEDY, a young virtuoso of the violin, and HARPS ACCORD, a harp duo, will also regale you at the Lionheart Tavern.

The Three Stags Pub will also be open, featuring FAIRE TO MIDDLIN, Jason Gunn the GOOD PIPER, and Fiddler and violinist JAMES MAHLER.

And of course the Sherwood Joust Arena will become the HIGHLAND GAMES ARENA, where great Scots will compete in traditional sports all day, including two ARCHERY TOURNAMENTS!

So put a Shamrock in your calendar over the weekend of September 8th – 10th and plan on joining us for the Sherwood Celtic Music Gathering of 2017!
