“My Attendance at a Celtic Rock Band”
There is a big difference between something that you hear, and something that you attend yourself. I believe that being present at a show is much more interesting than hearing about it from others. What I realized from my attendance at a Celtic concert is that it is hard to put the music, the show and the ambiance of the audience into words.
On Wednesday, March 23, 2005 at 8:00 pm, I went with my friends to the Depot to attend a concert titled “Enter the Haggis: Celtic-rock band returns to campus.” The performance was alive. The music played was from Enter the Haggis’ latest CD “Casualties of Retail,” and there were St. Patrick’s Day-themed refreshments. I, actually, enjoyed the music so much. It was pretty good and impressive that everybody felt excited about it.
The performers were talented and they played melodious tunes. One of them was Irish, and he was wearing a kilt. That seemed funny at first, but when I learned that it was a part of his culture, I really did appreciate it . There were also delicious pies and green drinks, symbolizing St. Patrick’s Day. I liked the show, so I took some snapshot photos of the scene while they were performing as a souvenir.
When I met my friend Karen, she was so excited to hear about the show since she could not attend. I tried to describe the show for her, and I used all the words I had, but though, it would have been better and more exciting for her to attend.
