Join us in our first appearance..again as Irish Row...when we appear in one of Colorado's best-know outdoor events, The Summerset Festival, Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 2 pm. We'll do two sets on the main stage, shown at left, in Clement Park. Many of you are familiar with the park--it's also used by the Colorado Irish Festival.
Summerset is a terrific, FREE event that runs both Saturday the 16th and Sunday, and features lots of music, a car show, a really neat hot air balloon festival, a wild and wooly dog show and even a fishing derby for the kids. Visit their web site for more information, or click on the photo above.

The music line-up is varied--and terrific. It includes a popular young group, The Commoners starting at noon; Riverrun follows at 2:45 pm--they are a new group with some well-known session musicians and a new lead vocalist; this group is poised to become a local phenomenon, and this is their first public appearance. At 5:30 pm, Hunker Down will offer a very entertaining wide range of Bluegrass music, with lots of other styles thrown in. This is a not-to-be-missed group!
Louise Connolly will make an appearance during the afternoon. See the next panel for details.
The Reed School of Irish Dance will perform a full show with Championship-level Irish Stepdancers at 8 pm. This is a great Irish dance group that performs regularly at the Irish Snug.
Irish Row will start at 8:30 pm, featuring the entire band. We'll play until 12:30. If this doesn't get you ready for St. Patrick's Day, nothing will!
Mid-afternoon on Sunday, September 9thy at the Irish Snug's Six Months to St. Patrick's Day Fundraiser will feature a performance by Louise Connolly, certainly one of the best Irish Step dancers in the World. By the age of 12 she already had earned herself the title of World Champion, twice, as well as Ulster Provincial, All-Ireland, All- Scottish, and British National Champion. At the age of 17, she hung up her competitive shoes and took her dancing career to the next level. She began dancing professionally, touring with the world-renowned show, Michael Flatley’s “Lord of the Dance”. By eighteen she was given the lead role of “Saoirse” and continued touring the world for almost 7 years. She has just started an Irish Stepdancing Academy in the Denver area and anyone looking for the best dance school for their son or daughter should not miss this performance and the chance to talk to Louise following her short show.
I have seen a lot of Irish dancers in Colorado, folks, and Louise Connolly is absolutely in the stratosphere above anything you have seen in a local performance! Don't miss it!
