McDude! 

Och! Let all the Duncans and Wallaces, Erskines, McClouds, McMuffins, and various other tartan-loving sons-of-a-Pict take note! Nothing says good times like steaming haggis, a bank of squalling bagpipes, and packs of bearded tough guys who are serious about their skirts. On Friday at 8 p.m. Clanjamfry, a Scottish festival, gets under way at -- appropriately enough -- Rhodes College's McCallum Ballroom with a good old-fashioned ceilidh. (That's Scottish-speak for hootenanny.) Saturday's festivities, at Evergreen Presbyterian Church, include a parade of tartans, "Bonniest Knees" and "most dour Scot" contests, food, dance, and performances by Celtic bands such as the Border Collies and Peggy Loyd. An evening concert showcases the talent of Celtic all-stars Brian McNeill and Enoch Kent (pictured above).

Kent, a Glasgow-born singer, sculptor, and songwriter, started his musical career with a band called the Reivers. His commitment to traditional Scottish music helped to ignite the Celtic folk revival of the 1950s and '60s.
