The Elders

Performing at the Colorado Irish Festival | Saturday, July 15th & Sunday, July 16th

The Elders were founded in 1998 by six individuals with a passion for music rooted in Americana and Celtic folk rock. From the beginning The Elders seemed to be channeling something ancient and enduring – something unaffected by fads, trends and the giant maw of mind-numbing commercialism. Their ability to bring together the art of storytelling with elements both musically progressive and rooted in tradition, has won them a broad international fan base, as well as critical acclaim.

Indigent Row

Indigent Row

Indigent Row is a progressive Celtic rock band that hails from the greater Denver/Boulder area. Indigent Row injects energy and passion into music both centuries old and newly conceived, remaining true to the traditional Irish tunes while breathing fresh life into all that they play. Combining original compositions with their own arrangements of traditional music, the band’s performances weave Celtic session tunes with songs of heroes and thieves, saints and scallywags, damsels and flea bitten tramps, breaking the rules and delighting their audiences. So get up off your arse and start dancing!

Avourneen

Avourneen

Avourneen (pronounced a-VORE-neen), a Denver-based trio that specializes in Irish folk, doesn’t have direct geographic ties to Ireland.  The band is composed of guitarist/vocalist Adam Goldstein, a Denver native, violinist CL Morden, an import from California, and Aeryk Parker, a longtime Colorado resident and talented multi-instrumentalist.  Together, they play a brand of Celtic music that’s both timeless and innovative, a take on the genre the Celtic Connection calls “unique in Colorado – and perhaps in the country.”

Chancer's Hooley

Chancer's Hooley

Chancer’s Hooley is a high energy Celtic band who consider it their sworn duty to have a great time with their music and their listeners.  More than just people who play and sing, Chancer’s Hooley engages audiences, lifts spirits, and initiates “Spontaneous Dancers” everywhere they go by playing a blend of upbeat modern and traditional Celtic music.  Denver based Chancer’s Hooley has performed on stages across the Colorado Front Range.

Juice O' The Barley

Juice O' The Barley

Over the years, Juice O’The Barley has established itself as one of the most sought after purveyors of Irish pub music in Colorado. Taking its name from a well–known–and much consumed–Irish beverage, THE JUICE performs contemporary versions of pub classics, as well as music from the current Irish folk and pop scene. They can be found playing at local pubs and at major Irish and Celtic festivals throughout Colorado. The Juice is not your mother’s typical Irish folk group. They play their music in a style that can only be described as “Irish music with an attitude.”

Wild Mountain

Wild Mountain

Wild Mountain plays a unique and refreshing mixture of Celtic and Bluegrass music. Their style of music has been described by various sources as ”greengrass” or “Celtgrass.” Headed by producer, engineer, composer, and guitarist Mike Nile, band members—including Renee Fine, David Potter, Sarah Jones, Dave Sweeney, and John Ware—have performed with, among others, Spirit, The Indulgers, the Boulder Philharmonic, The Treasure Coast Bluegrass Band, Linda Ronstadt, and Frank Zappa. Whatever you call their music, Wild Mountain will engage you with a stimulating new sound.
