This years Feis in the Forest Irish Music Fest was a great success. It was a beautiful day and we were glad to once again be a part of the festival and had a great time playing for everyone up in Wake Forest.
Our good friend Gerry McCrudden was honored this year for his years of service to the AOH and his commitment to Our Motto of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.
We also got to spend some time in the Session Tent. Thank you to Scott, Tommy, Gordon and Allison for playing and helping keep Traditional Irish Music alive.
Thanks also go to the Wake Forest Weekly for their great photos of the event and the articles they have published on the event.
The Irish are Ready to March!
Saint Patrick’s Day will arrive in less than a month and we are ready. The Raleigh St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival will be on March 11th. We will be marching in the parade with the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH), carrying the Irish County flags and handing out green beads. After the parade we will be playing on the big stage in City Plaza. Then the party will continue up in Wake Forest at D’s Bottle Shop where we will be playing that night. We hope to see you somewhere along the way on this fun day.
On Saint Patrick’s Day we will be playing at our good friend and fellow Hibernian’s restaurant Patrick Jane’s in Cary. And the festivities don’t stop there. The next day we will be out in Knightdale at the Shamrock Shuck playing Irish Music along with our friends Gerry Mccrudden and James Olin Oden.
Check out our Upcoming Dates page for information on all of our upcoming gigs.
We hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and got to spend some quality time with their family and friends.
We would like to thank everyone who came out to D’s Bottle Shop and Craft Beer College last Thursday and all those who donated to the food drive. We dropped off the donations with the AOH to the New Bern House. They were very grateful as they are expecting to have a larger crowd this year.
Back Home at Tir Na Nog
We were all sad last year when Tir Na Nog in Raleigh closed. However, after just about a year they have reopened around the corner from the old location. Our tin whistle player Jerry was there opening night and got the honor of having the first official pint.
We wish Annie the best of luck with the new Tir Na Nog and are looking forward to playing there in January.
