Congratulations are due to all of the performers. They were at the absolute top of their games. A variety of strengths was on display. Some performers offered especially stunning vocals, others showed special instrumental talent, and others were true crowd pleasers. The four independent judges had a very difficult job.
Special congratulations go to first-place finisher Gabe Long, and runner-up Josh Leonard.
The diversity in performers and their unique talents mirrored the diversity of the friendly crowd at the Celtic Tavern. A common refrain heard was "we don't need to drive to Atlanta to hear good live music, when we have this right in Olde Town at the Celtic."
