Red McWilliams


Red McWilliams - “America’s Celt”     Combining a percussive guitar with a rich baritone voice and a positive attitude has created the perfect blend of “entertainer”, the fact of which has been proven at around 57 Scottish Highland Games and Celtic festivals, renaissance faires, TV and radio and many coffee houses, pubs, clubs and restaurants on 3 continents, 7 countries, 42 states (including Hawai’i), from the US to Japan to Scotland and beyond, has been featured in numerous publications and radio shows and has numerous awards and commendations to his name.

    Always ready to perform, Red keeps his calendar full, due in the most part to the way he moves from ballads to bawdy, from patriotic to parody, historical to hysterical, only to be punctuated by off-the-wall comments, jokes, ribald humor and snide remarks caused by something in his nature that drives him to “entertain” his audiences.

    By the way, if you see him broken down on the highway, please stop and help him, he's on his way to the next event!

    Red extends his gratitude to all of his fellow Celts across the globe who have helped make this all possible. Without your support, there would be no “Red McWilliams”.

So come along for the ride, listen and find out for yourself!

Ginger Ackley

Ginger Ackley
    Ginger is a Texas native now living in Ohio. She’s taken her life–long passion for music and combined it with a love of history and tradition, and melded it all into a delightful style of Celtic Folk! Performing both traditional and contemporary songs, she plays her autoharp and whistles. She’s a songwriter “in the old style” according to Andy M. Stewart of “Silly Wizard” from Scotland. In her own words, she is "Celtic With A Twist!" because her music covers just about everything from original to traditional, mystical to educational.

    Ginger, along with her autoharps and whistles, has shared the stage with many musical friends including Brian Henke, Tuatha Dea, Danny O'Flaherty, SJ Tucker, and Red McWilliams. She has been nominated as 2016 Female Vocalist of the Year by the IPMA. You can find her music her website at gingerackley.com and listen to her on Pandora Radio.

Jade Dragon Pirates

Jade Dragon Pirates

    Times Past Entertainment’s Jade Dragon Pirates have been entertaining the masses since 2005. In the beginning they were designed to be part of the storyline cast for the local Renaissance Festival, but have since grown to appear and take part in charitable functions, parties, corporate functions and other festivals and fairs. Whether they are coming as a whole crew of 20 or performing and playing with the kids as a team of 4, they provide the energy and enthusiasm of true entertainers.

    With a female Captain they encourage little girls to stand up and take personal power as a natural state, while making sure the boys are never left out. The crew is made up of characters from different histories and backgrounds and if only a few are in attendance, they make sure to include the other characters in conversation in order to show that cultural barriers should never stop a crew from getting the job done.

    With a touch of history and a taste of edutainment, this crew is sure to guarantee the sprogs (and sometimes the adults) learn a thing or two about early piracy. With a flag designed from a Welsh Dragon and the ‘Articles of Agreement’ for the crew on hand, They are more than happy to show the world that there is another side to the life a pirate leads. All you have to do is approach and start a conversation and don’t be surprised if the Captain’s Chest is opened and trivia follows.

Old World Craftsman

Keith Phillips – Old World Craftsman     Where do you find Keith Phillips?  Look for a chisel, a mallet, a one-tone piece of sandstone and a Tenino quarry.

    Keith has made a career out of the ancient craft of stonecutting by sticking with traditional Scottish and time-tested tools, techniques and materials.  From his hand-built, three-sided workshed to his penchant for bagpipe music, the humble stonecutter has kept an important art form alive in the South Sound town of Tenino.  Tenino once quarried building stone for government and business business buildings throughout the West, from courthouses and banks to churches and the state capitol building.

    Some of Keith’s works can also be found in and around the Capitol campus in Olympia, Grays Harbor Courthouse, Clark Hall at the University of Washington, Stadium High School in Tacoma, Powell’s Book Store in Portland, Oregon Trail markers in Chehalis and Puyallup, and a myriad of memorial markers, monument stones, garden art pieces and other works of art.
