The Crooked Road Céilí Band – First Annual Santa Cruz Mountains Winter Set Dance & Céilí



The Crooked Road Céilí Band hosted an Irish dance party at the historic Trout Farm Inn on January 31, 2015. Set dancing and céilí (pronounced “kay-lee,” Irish for “party!”) was called by San Francisco’s Michael Murphy! It was an evening like no other!

Reviews for our evening of fun…we packed the house! Thank you so much everyone for joining the dance and filling the Felton Trout Farm Inn with joyful community! Real Irish music, real Irish dancing, fantastic folks! Stay tuned for our next céilí!

“Wow and wow! Congratulations on a killer event. Thank you from all of us, I had a great time…[the dance] was awesome and a half!”

“Home from a great night with great people! The Irish is where it is at! They are all such nice happy people. This all happened at the Felton Trout Farm Inn. In all of my years (and I was born and raised here in the Felton Trout Farm neighborhood) I have never seen it soooo packed! Very uplifting to be in this crowd and with good friends. Thanks for the invite and the always wonderful laughs.”
