We look forward to entertaining Irish music fans from all over the area! Come see us, won't you?
We've been asked by the great folks at Michigan Irish Festival to do a promotional show at the Muskegon Farmers Market on Saturday, Sept. 12 from 10am - 12pm (or later if the crowd so requests)! Come out and experience one of the best farmers markets in the state while enjoying some familiar Irish tunes,some of our originals, and some of our favorites!
Friends, We'll be picking up our instruments and for the first time in our history together, we will have a 6 member set! This is sure to be one of our most fun shows ever and it's all going down at the FREE family event, The Sparta Celtic Festival! Please come and enjoy some good food, drinks, and live music and entertainment all day! Did we mention it's FREE?!? (Admission anyway, not food or drink) We go on at 7:00PM but be sure to get there beforehand for other great bands, dance troupes, and plenty of family friendly activities. We'll see you there!
The newly opened Ridge Cider Company provides a great experience with craft hard cider here in Michigan! We're excited to be able to bring our music to this unique company. They create their cider with apples that they also grow themselves for a guaranteed quality product. Come help us celebrate their opening and have a pint or two with us!
We're heading north again to visit our dear friends up at Cafe Santé in Boyne City! Pull up a chair and enjoy some of Northern Michigan's finest fare with a pint of the black as we sing the old stories on the shore of Lake Michigan.
