Hi Everyone!   Lots of Elders shows coming up!  

Next weekend, May 25-26, join us for The 9th Annual Missouri River Irish Festival!

Showtimes:  9:00pm Saturday and 8:30pm Sunday

(See more upcoming shows below)



Throughout 2013, Ireland is opening its arms to hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world. Communities are sharing the very best of Irish culture, spirit, and the uniquely Irish sense of fun. With concerts, sporting events and clan gatherings taking place all across the country, all year long, “The Gathering 2013” provides the perfect opportunity to reach out to those who have moved away, their relatives, friends and descendants and invite them home!


To coincide with The Gathering, The Elders are planning a tour of Ireland for October 23 -30, and you are invited to join in!  

(The number of tickets is limited so better jump on it!) 

The tour kicks off in Cork, one of Ireland’s oldest cities, and includes stops in Killarney, Limerick, Galway, Arklow, Dublin and more!  After 8 days of sightseeing, music and revelry, we will end up with a wild Halloween party (check out last year’s costume photos!) before returning home.


Over 70 million people claim Irish ancestry. The band’s organization is working on a special plan to assist tour-goers in locating and contacting their Irish relatives. More info will be forthcoming as details emerge.


Take this opportunity to be a part of The Elders Gathering Tour of Ireland - and be prepared to make new friendships and memories that will last a lifetime!

"These boys don't just pick and grin, they damn near set their instruments on fire" — Mark Tucker, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange

"There is no other group in Ameri-Celt that brings the past, present, and future in a more telling way!" — Sean Smith, Celtic Beat

"This band started off great and has only gotten better over the years. The rich arrangements create strong moods from anthem sounding songs to more folky things. Their timeless sound deserves to be heard." — Jamie O'Brien, Philadelphia Irish Edition

"The Elders have become a beloved regional institution. Both as members of the community and as respected musicians, they have forged an uncommonly deep bond with their core constituency. The quality of the Elder's music is commensurate with its sterling civic-minded reputation… many of the qualities Kansas Citians pride themselves in - including humility, warmth, generosity and quiet tenacity- are exemplified by the Elders." — BILL BROWNLEE, KC Star

"This Kansas City powerhouse is still growing musically, as evidenced by ‘Wanderin‘ Life & Times,' strong story-telling and poetic lyrics backed by carefully thought-out musical accompaniment, at the same time capturing much of the energy and eclecticism of a live Elders show." — Mark Sisti, Mohawk Valley Irish Cultural Events
