Milwaukee Irish Fest 2015

Another great Irish Fest in Milwaukee. One of my favorite weekends of the year. Some of my favorites were there including Eileen Ivers, Lunasa, Liz Carroll, and the Elders. I also got to see Goitse for the first time (and hopefully not last). One of the highlights was Americana - Irish Style with We Banjo 3, Scythian and Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul.

Chicago Gaelic Park Irish Fest 2015

We made a quick trip on Memorial Day to see Doug Leahy and the Next Generation of Leahy and Chicago based fiddle player Kathleen Keane. It sure was worth the trip. Jim was able to get some great shots of both shows.
