The 20th Yachats Celtic Music Festival is currently on track to take place on the dates set back in February, before COVID-19 made its way to Oregon. Polly Plumb Productions, the group which organizes the annual festival, cancelled many events due to COVID-19 restrictions and concerns.

“However, as optimists we are maintaining a holding pattern on the Nov. 13-15, 2020 Celtic Festival,” the PPP board wrote on May 20.

The entertainment line up was also announced on May 20. Among those set to perform are Lisa Lynne and Aryeh Frankfurter, One for the Foxes, Old Blind Dogs, Altan and Johnny B Connolly and Eamon McElholm.

Alison Helzer, who last appeared at the festival in 2007, will also perform this year.

In the same announcement containing the line up, the board requested feedback from their audience as to whether they planned to attend.
