cleveland irish fest 2011

what would a cleveland irish fest be without rain? once again, we will not know. sporting a VERY good lineup this year, the cleveland irish fest was once again hot as could be, but a very enjoyable time nonetheless. regulars like seven nations (performing for the 12th consecutive time at CCIF) and the INCREDIBLE eileen ivers & immigrant soul featuring tommy mcdonnell wowed the crowds, along with recent adds to the regular schedule such as the incredible diver sisters known as the screaming orphans, and the always energetic band, scythian!

new to the cleveland festivities this year were the band slide, fronted by the whirlwind known as daire bracken, the fantastic mickey finns out of new york city, and the kreelers, a great band from the motor city!

cuyahoga falls irish fest 2011

festival season is here again! it all starts around here down in cuyahoga falls. this is actually a nice little festival that is one of the only free ones left. this year the festival featured seven nations and the glengary bhoys, two staples of the festival circut. everybody was having fun as wendy and laura danced to the bhoys, rebecca got to be a judge for best kilt, which dave decorated his knees in an attempt to win.

cleveland irish fest 2010

why is is ALWAYS so hot when this fest rolls around every year? not only is the temperature hot, but so is the music. this year saw the screaming orphans, seven nations, and eileen ivers & immigrant soul return, but scythian made it’s cleveland irish fest debut.

all seemed to be going well until mother nature decided we needed a little liquid cooling off (okay, a lot of liquid cooling off). this did create one of the coolest things to happen at one of these festivals when the sisters from donegal, the screaming orphans, being unable to perform on the rock stage due to the wetness and electricity (never a good combo), decided to do an impromptu acoustic set underneath the grandstand.

cleveland irish fest 2009

Another Cleveland Irish Fest has come and gone, and another good time was had by all in attendance. It was great seeing the whole Celtborg group who gathered to hear the sounds of Seven Nations, Eileen Ivers & Immigrant Soul, The Prodigals, and a new one for me, The Screaming Orphans. Unfortunately, we were not treated to a performance by Officer Dave (unless you count pretending to arrest Seven Nations) and I missed the photo opportunity of Colin Donahue PLAYING with 7N (but did catch him singing with them!) Until next year at CICF…
