The weather has been unpredictable and, at times, near catastrophic lately, but the sun shone brightly on Brittingham’s 2011 Irish Festival. And with all that sun, fans of Irish music, dance, food and merch made plenty of hay. Figuratively speaking.
Jamison is always a big hit with fans, but on this one gorgeous day on a big lot behind the Lafayette Hills pub they brought festival-goers to their feet. After all the rainy days, maybe we all just needed an afternoon of dancing.
And speaking of dancers, the kids of Celtic Flame performed frequently throughout the afternoon. A big hit, as always.
Later in the day, we caught former Blackthorn guitarist Seamus Kelleher’s act. He’s every bit as much fun as a solo.
