Darren Henwood will be our Master of Ceremonies in the Celtic Entertainment tent. Hailing originally from Scotland, Darren has been bringing his lively and energetic comedic perspective to the stages of Canada since 2010. On stage Darren reveals hilarious true stories from his own life along with imparting a Scotsman’s perception of North American culture during his sets (which often end up with audience members dragged into them with hysterical results).
