Tall ship, Enterprize (4)


The National Celtic Folk Festival is held at Portarlington, just south of Geelong, every Queen's Birthday Long Weekend (first weekend in June). It commenced in 2004. It has the usual array of market stalls, and off-beat acts, in addition to a vast array of Celtic performers, both from Australia and the British Isles.


On the tall ship, we were entertained by four musicians in total, but I only caught the name of two, Mandy Keating and Helen McLachlan. They performed before we cast off, and for the entirety of the trip, which gave me something enjoyable to focus my attention upon, rather than on the weather conditions. Helen brought out a mandolin, in addition to her guitar. I note she also plays the banjo, and Mandy the Irish flute. They were accompanied by the accordian and, back behind me, but not in a good position for my camera, there was a chap on the Irish Bagpipes!

The accordion is a bit different than my father's.

That sounds like the perfect type of music to sail by.
