dayton celtic fest 2012

you wouldn’t expect it, but the city of dayton, ohio has a really nice irish fest held right downtown alongside the river. and the AMAZING thing is that with all of the great talent they have at this festival, you would think it would cost to attend, but no, it’s free.

as a late decision to go, mindy, sally and i decided to check out the festival, held between the weeks of irish fests in cleveland and dublin, ohio. with an amazing number of vendors, too, the lineup of talent included gaelic storm (who just released a new cd, chicken boxer), enter the haggis, scythian, homeland, slide, and Máirtín de Cógáin.

what a good choice we made, as this was a really nice festival we will probably return to in the future.

annapolis irish fest 2012

in only it’s second year, the annapolis irish fest has grown from 5,000 in attendance to 20,000! and with the beginnings that they have, i can see this growing into a festival that will be one many of the bands will want to stop at.

held at the anne arundel fairgrounds, the lineup included icewagon flu, barleyjuice, scythian, the screaming orphans, the rovers, albannach, and the rouges that entertained everybody all day on the 2 stages.

unfortunately, due to scheduling (and the girls having to head north), the screaming orphans set was cut way short. that was the only bummer for the day.
