Celtic Poets: A SpringSong Session with Jim Dalton and Maggi Smith-Dalton Poetry with Music "Come all ye!" and take your place in the long and honorable bardic tradition of Celtic poetry and music. Bring your own favorite Celtic poetry to read aloud. You'll take the stage (or you can read from your place in the audience, if you prefer) between Celtic songs and musical numbers to be performed by the husband and wife team of Jim Dalton and Maggi Smith-Dalton.

The Daltons' performance will also accompanied by an informative slideshow. We'll have some poetry on hand, but you are really encouraged to dig deeply to find your own favorites from the rich traditions, ancient or modern, of the Celtic soul.

ALL ages are invited to participate in the reading of poetry, and poetry may be drawn from any era, and any of the Celtic nations (Ireland, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Brittany, Scotland, and Wales)*. *There are also ancient Celtic connections to Britain, France, Belgium (the Gaulic tribes), and to Spain (Galicia).
