cleveland irish fest 2010

why is is ALWAYS so hot when this fest rolls around every year? not only is the temperature hot, but so is the music. this year saw the screaming orphans, seven nations, and eileen ivers & immigrant soul return, but scythian made it’s cleveland irish fest debut.

all seemed to be going well until mother nature decided we needed a little liquid cooling off (okay, a lot of liquid cooling off). this did create one of the coolest things to happen at one of these festivals when the sisters from donegal, the screaming orphans, being unable to perform on the rock stage due to the wetness and electricity (never a good combo), decided to do an impromptu acoustic set underneath the grandstand.

pittsburgh irish fest 2009

trying to find the pittsburgh irish fest was not quite as easy as it had been in the past, but after heading east out of town, through a neighborhood, across the river, and behind a costco and other shopping, we finally found it. it did not help that the city of pittsburgh is preparing for the G20 summit in a couple of weeks, so there was a bit of construction. once we got there, we found they have a nice little setup there (except for a 25-minute wait TO GET TICKETS!). after we got in, the place was laid out nicely with the main stages on opposite ends and the main stage having picnic tables around and a lawn to sit on.

gaelic storm, always fun, was the first band we got to see, and of course picked on the browns (although there were a lot of clevelanders there). over to the other stage we went to catch scythian get the whole tent up and moving. then back to the main stage to catch the great sounds of slide.

slide was just such a GREAT combination of musicianship, energy (provided mostly by the whirling dervish known as daire bracken), very nice vocals by a 22-year old  dave curley, and some great soundwork by a very nice chloe nagle (who has the greatest accent that even sally said she could listen to for a long while).

for more pictures from the day, find them HERE
