January 20 - Kathy and Steven’s Long Walk
In the summer of 2018 Kathy and Steven Light (of the Fyre and Lightning Consort) walked the entire Camino de Santiago, over 500 miles. Starting in France they climbed over the Pyrenees and continued west to Santiago de Compostela and onward to Finisterre (believed by the Romans to be the end of the known world). They will show pictures, talk about their experiences and play ancient and traditional music from the Camino, which has been a pilgrim route for over 1,000 years. Admission is by donation to benefit the Plainfield Opera House.
