The gift that keeps on giving.

Here is a picture of artist, musician and luthier Mark Franzke with Kansas City Irish Fest board members Dan Regan and Ed Follis at a meeting earlier this evening. I’ll use Dan’s eloquent words from an earlier email to explain why we were there:

Last year Mark Franzke was awarded a grant to build a Celtic themed mandolin. He generously offered to donate the finished instrument back to Irish Fest and requested that we auction it and use the proceeds of the sale to fund a traditional music scholarship for children.

Hang on for more details, but while you wait, check out Mark’s mandolin creation blog:
