Carolina Renaissance Festival: The CRAIC Show

One of my favorite entertainers at the 2019 Carolina Renaissance Festival was the Celtic band The CRAIC Show.  The rhythmic traditional drumming, violin, bagpipes and powerful vocals created a high energy musical experience which definitely inspired the crowd. The band describes their blending styles as World Medieval Music.
