And on the fifth day we have another band I haven't heard of: Goitse! Decribed at Irishfest.com as five unbelievably talented young musicians from the University of Limerick Goitse! (pronounced gwi-cha for the uninformed) Wow...these kids (young adults as they tell us) can play and have fun! This is a don't miss band!
A new bunch of Scottish rocks by the name of Skerryvore. I listed to a couple tracks off there website and this band is going to have the crowd jumping. There are three songs . The Ginger Grouse jigs is pretty traditional sounding. On the Road is very modern. Singer reminded me of Seven Nations when I first heard it. The Rox Revival song is the one that gets you going. A fast paced bagpipe with a touch of ska thrown in by the horn section. Check it out for yourselves!
Posted from the Irishfest Website On the 150th day of Christmas Paddy McFest gave to me: 150??? Well in truth it is the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War. So this year in commemoration of that event the Ward Irish Music Archives will be presenting an exhibit on the Irish and their involvement in the war. We'll also be bringing back Civil War historian and singer David Kincaid. David delighted Milwaukee audiences a few years back and we're delighted to have him back!
Clumsy Lovers will be back after an absence of several years. They were one of the bands I saw at my first visit to irishfest. Their music is a combination of bluegrass, irish, and a bit of country. It is pretty hard to define their sound but the tunes are very enjoyable. The website is here:
You can here quite a few of their tunes and see their video if you click on the download section of their website. Bobby Banjo, Okay Alright, Smart Kid, and This is Clumsy Love ar my favorrites. Also check out their "ow-sorry" t shirt. Funny stuff
