Celtic Gold Academy of Irish Dance 
 
 
"The Celtic Gold Academy of Irish Dance, under the direction of Doireann Maoileidigh (pronounced Dirin MaLady) and her husband John Hoy was established in the Los Angeles area in 1984. The school is currently registered with An Coimisiun Le Rince Gaelacha, in Dublin, Ireland, The Irish Dance Teachers Association of North America, and The Western US Irish Dance Teachers Association. Doireann’s family name is synonymous with the finest of Irish dancing throughout the world. The original school, Inis Ealga, was founded by Doireann’s father, Maitiu O’Maoileidigh, in Dublin, Ireland, over fifty years ago. Inis Ealga grew to be the top school in Ireland and Maitiu, along with his associate teacher, Marie Duffy (currently choreographer of 'Lord of the Dance'), traveled throughout the US, Canada and Australia, sharing their expertise of an old Irish tradition that has quickly become a very active and much sought after art form."  Midway City
The Fenians 
 
 
"The Fenians are an electrifying Irish musical quintet based out of Orange County, CA (now there's irony). The lads offer a mix of their original creations, and contemporary and traditional songs. Their foundation is decidedly Celtic, but there is no mistaking the complimentary influences of Rock, Folk, Bluegrass, Jazz, and World music. If ever there was a band whose members make up a potent body of music, it is The Fenians. Terry Casey - lead vocals and mandolin - the heart, Nate Light - bass, vocals - the pulse, David Burnett - whistles, sax, flute - the soul, Chris Pierce - drums, vocals - the bones, and Rob Williams - vocals, guitar - the muscle, through their music and voices represent everyman - sweet and sorrowful; brave and beautiful; angry and amused."  Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley

Long Beach Celtic Festival 
 
 
Appears to be defunct, but if anyone has information to share, please send it to webmaster@killerorange.com. "The high costs asscociated with producing the annual Long Beach Celtic Music Festival by-the-sea have necessitated that I find a new venue. The costs keep getting higher as the City Of Long Beach requires firemen and policemen be on site that I pay overtime along with eight security guards at a festival that may never have had an argument let alone a fight. The festival vendors pay one of the highest permit fees of any city that taxes the vendors. Huge expenses for canopies,, tables, chairs, stages, dance floors, fencing, porta-potties, hand sinks and lack of suitable parking have forced the idea to find a more affordable and suitable venue for everyone. The venues I am looking for will have a stage, shaded seating, bathrooms and more and accomodate about 1200 to 1500 people which is the number we have attracted to the festival. When the all the numbers add up to where I can continue to bring in the finest Celtic musicians in the world it will be a win win for everyone. The 2004 festival with Gaelic Storm, Wicked Tinkers, Wolfstone, Celtic Spring, Ken O'Malley, Banshee In The Kitchen, Everything Celtic along with Drummond Ranch's sheep herding demos, Queen Medb Ancient Celtic Re-Enactment, George The Giant and excellent vendors was extremely well received according to the surveys. Paddy Doyle's Boots put on a tremendous show Saturday night on the Queen Mary."  Long Beach
