6 More Days!!!

6 Days to go!!! The ayes have it - Barleyjuice is a grand group of talented tunesmiths and prodigious performers, and the absolute best time you can have at a concert without removing your kilt. With five studio albums and a double CD collection to date, these five kilted yanks are currently one of the most beloved celtic rock bands in the USA. Kyf Brewer's signature whiskey-soaked vocals perfectly trademark the group's quick-witted and catchy originals, and partner Keith "Swanny" Swanson is no slouch, lithely covering additional lead vocals, guitar, mandolin, whistle, bouzouki, and bagpipes. Both originally piped in the Loch Rannoch Pipe Band, and performed in Edinburgh's Millennium March for Prince Charles. 

Barely Juice will be ending our first night 8/31 on the Celtic Rock Stage at 10:30 p.m., they will also perform on Saturday 9/1 at 1 and 6, and Sunday 9/2 at 4:45 and 10:30!

9 More Days!!!

9 more days and the party will officially begin!!! We could still use a few more volunteers so make sure you contact Linda Walsh! You can call her at 216-538-1358 or email her at! Tonight we are featuring the Makem and Spa
in Brothers. Every generation has a few acts that define where a musical genre is going, performers so confident in their chosen field that they are able to completely embrace the genre and yet introduce something new to it. In Irish folk music today, that act is the Makem and Spain Brothers. Not in the past 30 years has a group taken the international stage with such vocal power and stage presence, capturing the essence of their genre, while standing out as something truly unique. A host of various instruments and five male vocals, using precise three-part harmonies blend perfectly for what many have described as a wall of sound. The Makem and Spain Brothers are at their best onstage where their talent and enthusiasm draw in fans who have never experienced the joy of folk music.

These Gentlemen will be playing on the commercial stage Saturday 9/1 at 3 and 9, Sunday 9/2 at 5:30 and 10, and Monday 9/3 at 4 p.m.
