What Others have said about the Blackstone Valley Celtic Festival:

In the June 30, 2005 Boston Globe Calendar section feature article titled Goin' Small . . . A few of our favorite undersized summer music festivals, Scott Alarik wrote:

"Singer-songwriter Robbie O'Connell says Blackstone Valley, which he's performed several times, reminds him of the country fairs he used to savor as a boy in Ireland. 'You almost feel like you're in rural Ireland,' he says, 'with farm land all around, and a view of the valley and the hills in the distance.' - Boston Globe June 30, 2005

Michael Quinlin, President of the Boston Irish Tourism Association said:

"Thanks for highlighting Blackstone [Valley] Celtic Festival, which is really emerging as one of the new highpoints on the local Irish calendar."
