I am so glad to see these posts! I am a native to Washington and currently living in Oregon.....but I have spent the past three summers working in Estes Park, Colorado...which is where I first saw Albannach in concert, at the Longs Peak Scottish/Irish Festival.
I sent a message to someone in charge of booking concerts or something like that a few months ago to see about getting the band to Washington or Oregon. I offered up my house (in both states), my car, me being a personal chef....pretty much everything...haha....if it meant the band traveling a little farther north than Cali for a few days.
We have alot of great venues, the Gorge definately being one of them, and hopefully it is only a matter of time.
