Last weekend the RavensFire band joined millions of Americans around the country to celebrate Independence day. The band traveled to Austin, Minnesota for their annual Freedom Festival. The Austin Chamber of Commerce puts on a wonderful five-day festival, complete with fireworks, a parade, and lots of music. The weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed a warm summer day. Shade was the premium commodity, as people kept moving their chairs to stay out of the sun.
A favorite song of the day was Hurrah for the Heroes, written by Melissa and featured on the RavensFire CD.
The RavensFire Band is well known all around the area for their energetic performances, beautiful vocal harmonies, and skilled instrumentals while playing and singing their unique collection of lively traditional Irish, Folk, World, Americana and original music.
