Family Celtic Day is Back and will be
Presenting an Enhanced Educational Progam this year!!
Hammer Hands with Scott Williams
Scott has been considering starting lessons out of his home in Lake Forest
in South Orange County or at student's homes depending on where Scott is
performing. Scott is now a sales representative for MasterWorks
hammered dulcimers, so quality instruments can be purchased or rented
directly from Scott.
Teaching out of his home will allow Scott more control over instruction and
will allow him better access to music books, the internet, amplification
equipment, and tuners for better instruction.
Children are especially drawn to the hammered dulcimer whenever Scott
performs on it. Sign up your child for a unique musical experience. Scott
insists that a parent or adult be present during home lessons.
Lion Harp with Aryeh Franfurter
Aryeh will entertain you with his fiddle, Harp and a Swedish Nyckelharpa a
"keyed fiddle." If you would like to know more about this rare and amazing
Instrument come out and sit under the big oak tree for a world class show.
Highland Bagpipes with George Harcrow
A Member of Callanish Pipe Band will play and talk about the bagpipes.
The Callanish Pipe Band serves as the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Honor
Guard Pipes and Drums. They've played for the Sheriff's Regional Training
Center Academy Graduation ceremony, funerals, graduations, parades,
major and minor league sporting events, and other special activities
including the annual Blue Mass, a ceremony sponsored by the Knight's of
Columbus, honoring the men and women of all First Responders (Police,
Fire, Paramedics, and Sheriff’s Department). The Blue Mass brought
together multiple pipe bands that played to honor those in uniform. We are
proud to provide this service to those who keep us safe.
Living History Village
Living History is a walk through the life and time of the Celtic people and their
neighbors in trade and war.
Dark Boar (The The Norsemens)
We now know as early as 1500bc the Scandinavians were exchanging goods
across the North Sea with the peoples of Ireland, and England. By the first
century they were trading with the Romans. The fifth century found them
hosting foreign merchants at bustling Scandinavian market towns.
16th Century Irish Life wrapped up in a encampment.

Educational and Anti-drug Programs
Young minds are fascinated by the images of powerful knights and beautiful ladies. Nothing captures their attention and
imagination like having the Imperial Knights bring these images to life right in front of them. We can bring our show to your
location and tailor it to fit any field or multi-purpose room.
Imperial Knights' educational programs bring history to life! Nothing get's students involved like having characters right out
of their textbook speaking and answering their questions. In accordance with grade level standards we give an educational
presentation complete with demonstrations and authentic tools.
Our Anti-drug show helps give kids the courage to "Just Say No" by inspiring them to follow their dreams in a unique and
unforgettable way! While many other programs can have trouble getting through, students of all ages connect with our show's

"We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within
The Universe According to Galileo Show™ is a unique interactive show with
the Maestro himself. With the "help" of his house maid Marina Gamba,
Galileo entertains & discusses the fundamentals of the budding science of
astronomy of his time. (Circa: 1608-1611.) With the ever popular, Planets on a
Stick™, Galileo asks for volunteers from the audience to become a living model
of the known universe based on the theories of Aristotle, Ptolemy and
Copernicus, as well as, his discoveries made with the telescope. By adding a
touch of wit, improvisation and a little Italian Commedia Del' Arte flavor, you'll
not only be entertained, but have a good time learning something as well.
The show is somewhat family orientated (PG-13), the show is versatile and
flexible to accommodate for a children's audience and adult audiences. The
show can be done with as little as a few people for an up close and personal
show, to a full audience and everything in between.
