Both events will be open to the public for $15/adults $7/children under 12 at the door. We want to be able to share these incredible events with a wider audience so please invite your friends and neighbors to share in the fun.


When: Friday, September 21 at 7 p.m.
Where: Sugar Creek Bible Camp, Ferryville, Wisconsin
Cost: $15/adults $7/children under 12
Why: Because it is going to be an amazing, soulful, hilarious, uplifting and riveting performance by Laugh-Fest's Singer/Songwriter/Comedienne Celia! She dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and sacred delighting audiences across the nation. In addition to having the kind of silky smooth voice often associated with classic Celtic Singers, Celia excels at comedy. She often transforms right on stage into one or more of her alter-egos-whose antics typically leave the audience howling with laughter. With powerful, heart-felt vocals and wacky comedic improvisations, the audience never knows what will happen with Celia on stage.

Celia often uses sophisticated “looping” technology to perform duets, trios, and even larger ensembles with herself. Nothing is pre-recorded. She lays down a track then using the looping technology harmonizes with herself — all live and in real time. The result is an amazing listening experience for the audience.

“Go out of your way to see her. You won’t be disappointed.” - Rick’s CafĂ© Magazine
