Seasons: The Michigan Irish Music Fest
The seasons turn and you know summer is almost over when the Michigan Irish Music Festival hits town. It stays for a lovely 4 days the second weekend in September. You can eat, drink, listen to the story telling competition, hear school children play their fiddles en masse, watch elaborately costumed young people compete in step dance, attend a mock Irish Wake, compete in Highland Games, see a dog show of Celtic breeds (there’s more than the Irish Setter), have a quiet cuppa by a beautiful lake, but the heart of the festival is music.
To be clear; the heart of the festival is drinking and dancing while listening to Irish Music.The Heart of Michigan Irish Fest; Scythian from DuneLight on Vimeo.
