    Skibbereen is proud to once again have the privilege of playing at the Farmer's Market, a wonderful gathering of local and regional food (and craft) merchants who sell locally grown produce, mostly organic. We will be at the corner of 4th and Adams (SW corner) and will be playing from 10:00 to 12:00 in the hot, hot sun! Please come on down and bring some cash so you can take home some great tasting foods as well as experiences and the satisfaction that you've supported "the little guys." Thanks to Downtown Springfield, Inc for this ongoing tradition that is free to the public.

    Skibbereen takes the stage for a one hour, concert set of their original, Celtic-inspired rock and roll (with perhaps a cover or two thrown in for good measure!) and world music. The music runs until late but Skibbereen will surely please those who arrive right after work!!
