Irishfest Milwaukee update
Bill and Imelda back in the door from Irish Fest 2014 in Milwaukee. They report HUGE crowds celebrated the culture and the craic in gorgeous weather. Massive, surprise hits of the Fest were Socks in the Frying Pan, who received their first international exposure right here on LiveIreland! Also, massive audiences for We Banjo 3, LiveIreland’s Male Vocalist of the Decade, Paddy Homan and the Queen of the scene, Liz Carroll. Beoga and Alasdair Fraser also scored well, and reports are that Creel. and also Donal Lunny joined by Andy Irvine were really exciting. Sharon Shannon had a disappointing crowd for her Friday performance, but thousands turned out for her Saturday show. Our dynamic duo are estimating crowds at well over 125,000 for the weekend. Another stunner for Milwaukee and the new kings on the scene, Socks!
