Rochester Irish Fest 2015


RavensFire on the Main Stage Saturday evening

What a weekend at the Rochester Irish Fest! It was so nice to have the festival return to the Peace Plaza this year. This area is blessed to have so many fine musicians and dancers willing to share their talents. We were able to make new friends and renew friendships with people we’ve known for years.

The audiences both evenings really got into the music, especially the children who danced in front of the main stage during RavensFire‘s Saturday performance. What a beautiful expression of joy in music! It’s always an honor to play on the main stage, and this time was no exception.


In the “Irish Pub” (aka Lord Essex) at Irish Fest

RavensFire also played for an intimate audience in the Irish Pub (other times known as the Lord Essex Room).

At the children’s tent we had an appreciative audience of kids and their grandparents.

One more thing … As a special treat, a new friend invited the band to a private birthday party at a downtown brew pub. We sang and partied for several hours before heading back to the festival to take in the ceili dance.

Thank you to everyone who came out, both nights, to see us.
