Happy October! 

Hey folks - Pete here from the Hounds.

With the onset of October comes a much needed slow down for the Hounds of Finn. We had a very interesting year with many great highlights and some pretty profound low points as well. I am so thankful for all of your support of our band over the years, and I look forward to maintaining our relationship with you as we evolve.

We wish our colleague Leslie Rich all the best in his future endeavors. If you want to keep up with him, you can find him online here.

We will not be appearing at Charlie's this month - we're canceling our Oct 17 & 18 scheduled performances.

However - we will return in November and December with some special guests that we'd like to introduce to you. On November 7 and 8 we'll be joined at Charlie's with Ian Gould, a new friend of ours from Milwaukee. And on December 19 & 20th, we'll be joined by an old friend - Lojo Russo!

Have a great month and we hope to see many of you in November at Charlie's in Stillwater. All the best!

Sincerely,

Pete McCauley

Get your charity on! 

Hi All - Pete here. This Saturday we're performing at a fundraising event for my son Finn's school - the Hamline Elementary School in St. Paul. 

Hamline Elementary doesn't have enough funds to hire full time music or art teachers. As a result we are hoping to help raise funds for "Artists in Residence" - professionals who can spend a few weeks at a time sharing their creative pursuits with our children.

Full details can be found here

The Hounds go on from 3:30-4:30pm. We hope to see you there!

Back in the USSA... 

Greetings, folks! We have returned from a wonderful tour of Ireland and couldn't be more pleased with how it all turned out. Many thanks to the families, friends, and fans who joined us; to Celtic Journeys for making it all happen so smoothly; and to all the venues we performed at for taking us on. It was truly a pleasure!

You can see photos and updates via our Facebook page; we'll get some onto this site soon as well. Our webmaster is on vacation in East Timor at the moment.

We'll be taking a little time for ourselves over the next few weeks; but we return to the stage at Charlie's Irish Pub in Stillwater on April 18 & 19. Join us if you can.

All the best and happy spring from the Hounds of Finn!
