Festival Celtique de Quebec

As I was walking back to my hotel after supper, I heard LOUD Celtic music.

I love love love Celtic music so followed the tunes, expecting to arrive at a pub.

Instead I discovered the Festival Celtique de Quebec was happening at Chaussée des Écossais ... the festival ends tomorrow.

The Irish Bastards were playing ... and they were good!  They spoke in French (so I didn't understand what they were saying ... the audience found them amusing) but sang in English.

They were selling booze (beer, wine, etc.).  Beer was $4 a bottle!  Sweet!

I grabbed a beer and found a spot on a picnic bench up front and enjoyed the tunes.

A free Celtic concert with cheap beer ... gotta love it!

That looks like FUN. There is an annual Irish festival around here every June and I've been a few times, but they charge so much for admission - I haven't been in a while.
