Kinnfolk fans raise $2,000 for Dave's Cancer Recovery Fund
On June 16, we streamed a 2+ hour Facebook Live concert benefiting our friend Dave Huggett, who was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer. After just three songs, listeners had already donated $1,000. By the end of the night, we'd raised over $2,000 to help Dave! We were incredibly humbled by the generosity of our fans. An enormous thank-you to everyone who donated, shared the video, and wished Dave well on the stream!
Dave is currently undergoing treatment and every cent helps. You can contribute to his recovery fund by clicking the button below!
Celtic Weekend at the WV Renaissance Festival
Our favorite gig last month was Celtic Weekend at the West Virginia Renaissance Faire! After missing out on the 2020 season due to COVID-19 (womp womp), we were excited to return to the little town of Essex and perform a few sets for friends and patrons alike. 'Twas a weekend of pointy ears, gorgeous mountain views, food-on-a-stick, and reunions with old friends.
