Gung Haggis Fat Choy Gig!

It might seem like a typo, but no, you’re reading this correctly! You’ll want to put this on your calendar now, it will be a most unique gig opportunity for the club!! We have been invited (and accepted the offer!) to be the opening act for the annual Gung Haggis Fat Choy celebration at the China Harbor Restaurant http://www.chinaharborseattle.com, in Seattle. This will be Sunday, Feb. 16th, 2014!

There will be a paying crowd (this has been a fund raiser in the past) of about 275 guests, mostly either Scottish or Chinese, as you might imagine! The entire event runs from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m.

So, what is it exactly? Basically, it’s a celebration of Robert Burns’ Day and the Chinese New Year, all rolled into one! For more details, see http://www.gunghaggisfatchoy-seattle.org/Toddish_McWong___The_Story.html

You will not be able to stay for dinner unless, I assume, you purchase tickets for the event. Information on China Harbor’s website, at this time, only has last year’s details, on how to get tickets, etc.. So, be watching their web site if you and your friends or family want to join in on the complete celebration!

You’ll find quite a little bit of information on Wikipedia, as well. This has become quite the event! Meanwhile…. SAVE THAT DATE – Feb. 16th, 2014!!

  1. THIS is EXCITING!
    Maybe we can do a song together… I play accordion, and have been playing with a Celtic Ceilidh ensemble in Vancouver BC. So we play some jigs and reels such as Sleeping Maggie, St. Anne’s Reel, Boys of Bluehill, and many more.
    My role is host, as I travel down from Vancouver for the day. See you in February…
    Slainte, Toddish
