dublin irish fest 2012

you KNOW the weekend is going to be good when the first person you see at the hotel is eileen ivers, along with her husband brian and son adrian! once settled in, it was time to head over to the fest to catch a set by the prodigals. next up, the young dubliners rocked the main stage, which on most nights would have left the crowd happy and well entertained, as they are THAT good! but this crowd grew larger and larger as the time for gaelic storm was near. after swapping humerous stories with patrick and steve, they, along with ryan, peter, and the always lovely jessie headed out to blow the crowd away.  friday’s photos are HERE

saturday brought be to see slide and the always amazing daire bracken (along with the rest of the great band), and his whirling dervish performance. following that were the always fantastic elders (from kc), and moya brennan with her band, t with the maggies. i finished the day with a cool band called SHOOGLENIFTY, a band was somewhat hard to classify, but VERY easy to listen to. we also managed to get TWO group photos of the CELTBORG SOCIETY. by the time the day had morphed into night, the bar hotel filled with a lot of the musicians, and then 4 different seisuns formed in different parts of the hotel.  saturday’s photos are HERE

sunday found me at john whelan’s set. not only is this guy a fantastic musician and performer, he has an AMAZING talent for finding young musicians to play along with him. next up, the band two2many, fronted by the lovely and talented keri mcbride. after that, it was time for the scattering, where most of the bands mix and match for a couple of songs before all coming together for one BIG group song.  sunday’s photos are HERE

once again, the dublin irish fest does NOT disappoint!

festival season is here again! it all starts around here down in cuyahoga falls. this is actually a nice little festival that is one of the only free ones left. this year the festival featured seven nations and the glengary bhoys, two staples of the festival circut. everybody was having fun as wendy and laura danced to the bhoys, rebecca got to be a judge for best kilt, which dave decorated his knees in an attempt to win.

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.

cleveland irish fest 2009

Another Cleveland Irish Fest has come and gone, and another good time was had by all in attendance. It was great seeing the whole Celtborg group who gathered to hear the sounds of Seven Nations, Eileen Ivers & Immigrant Soul, The Prodigals, and a new one for me, The Screaming Orphans. Unfortunately, we were not treated to a performance by Officer Dave (unless you count pretending to arrest Seven Nations) and I missed the photo opportunity of Colin Donahue PLAYING with 7N (but did catch him singing with them!) Until next year at CICF…
