Celia is a singer, songwriter, actress, and storyteller who dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and the sacred. Think Enya meets Tori Amos meets Gilda Radner.
From her website:
A dynamic live performer known for her willingness to follow an evocative ballad with a tune about ninjas or pirates, Tucker is never in danger of taking herself too seriously. She lets it be plain on stage that she loves her job, but she also shows grace and calm, courting and cajoling her audience. Reviewers compare her voice to that of Joni Mitchell or Tori Amos, her guitar work to that of Emily Saliers. Apart from writing lyrics and music, S. J. loves fire dancing with poi and hula hoop and has given fire performances & workshops across the country. Additionally, she has worked as a professional audiobook narrator and an indie film score composer.

Arthur Hinds & the Round Table
From their Facebook Page:
A performance by Arthur Hinds and The Round Table is an unforgettable experience, full of music, laughter, love, and magic. Blending stories from Celtic myth and legend with songs drawn not only from Celtic and American folk traditions but from their own inspiration.
What do you get when you combine Arthur Hinds of Emerald Rose and years of solo pagan music, with life long musician Amanda Neitz, with multi-instrumentalist Tyler Neitz , you get Arthur Hinds & The Round Table. Come dance and sing with songs from their new CD, In Her Name, as well as old favorites
From their website:
Festival Favorites Sharon Knight and Winter are internationally touring musicians in the mythic-Celtic vein. Their penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired their own style, “Neofolk Romantique”. This often sounds less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” This suits them fine.
Celtic Folk roots, evolving into one of the hottest bands on the Celtic Rock circuit today. Traditional tunes with rich, literate lyrics, compelling melodies and rock, jazz and flamenco instrumental hooks, this band weaves a tapestry unlike any other out there.
