We had a fabulous time at Arts Fest. We play festivals out of town so often in the summer. This was our first year on the main stage in our hometown.
The next three photos are by my handsome brother-in-wish Troy Shehan.
We were thrilled to partner with the Champagne Academy of Irish Dance at the Ireland tent on Sunday providing live music for the fantastic dancers, one of whom provided some music of her own!
One of my good friends was onstage with her band right before us on Saturday. She made an awesome tic-tac-toe board out of sticks and rocks to occupy my children who were trying to concuss and electrocute themselves backstage.
Atticus was very proud to be dancing at Arts Fest. Photo by Kelly Walsh.
Liam also had a very important job, taking photos of all the fun at the Ireland tent.
We were very lucky to have grandparents visiting for the weekend helping out with the kids. It takes a village to raise an Irish band.
My favorite photo of the weekend, our little dancer with his great-grandmother.
It’s impossible not to love a town that sponsors such an amazing event every summer.
Next up, we’re looking forward to playing at the Reunion Vineyard in Mount Pleasant on July 14 and at the Iowa City Farmer’s Market on August 31.
Also on the books, my friend Jeffrey C. Capps and I will be playing at Mendoza Wine Bar on August 24.
How’s that for a summer of fun? Come say hi!
