Cake For Dinner and La Crosse Irish Fest

In honor of Mustard Seed Drama Traveling Troupe’s 5th appearance at La Crosse Irish Fest,  we are having a teeny, tiny give-away.

Now, I’ve never done this before.  Remember I’m just one mom here with only a wee mailing list.

So, here goes…

Mustard Seed Drama (a student group) will be presenting 3 puppet plays this weekend at Irish Fest in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

The last performance will be right before a really (really) top-notch children’s music show by Scythian, called Cake For Dinner.  After the kids show, Scythian will do a rocking (rowdy) grown ups show, sort of “Celtic with an edge” on the Main Stage.  The four-man band (headed up by brothers) plays a range of styles from traditional Celtic to Celtic rock, with strains of Gypsy and klezmer.

Rousing and raucous, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays kicked-up Celtic and world music with hints of Gypsy and Klezmer, all infused with a touch of punk-rock sensibility. Take a trio of classically trained dueling fiddlers, toss in a rhythm guitar, a banjo and the occasional funky accordion, then power it with the driving rhythm of a world percussionist, and you’ve got the ingredients for a show you won’t soon forget. Scythian’s high-energy, adrenaline-peddling, interactive brand of music is the result of their origins as street performers and has one goal in mind – to get people up on their feet and dancing. Their repertoire ranges from traditional and contemporary Celtic and folk music to the alluring and dramatic strains of Gypsy and Eastern European tunes, and then crosses back over the border to pick up some good old-fashioned bluegrass licks. Scythian is: Josef Crosby (Fiddle/Bass), Alexander (Fiddle/Mandolin) & Danylo Fedoryka (accordion/guitar), Ben-David Warner (Fiddle/Banjo) and Tim Hepburn(Percussion).

Now. Here’s the deal:

I have in my possession, an autographed Cake For Dinner (children’s album) CD that the Scythian guys gave to give-away here.

I will award the coveted CD, to the first person who finds all the clues that will be posted on the Southwest Wisconsin Homeschools blog.

You’ll have to come back a few times to get the clues, as they will be put on this post as updates (and maybe be hidden around the site.) Hehehe, sort of like a “Where’s Waldo.”   Ah, we’re a tricky lot, we homeschool moms.

Also, if you come up to Mustard Seed Drama at La Crosse Irish Fest on Saturday, we will give you an additional clue.

Once someone has collected all the clues, we will have a winner!
