Mother Nature intervened again during the 1994 Milwaukee Irish Fest and gave us two days of rain.
The Gallagher clan had a reunion, and the cultural village included exhibits by Mary Butler Shannon on Irish Story Quilts, Celtic Camera had photo expressions of Ireland, a crystal cutter from Connemara Celtic Crystal, and tapestries from Taipeis Gael Students. Other exhibits were about Urban Folklife, Four Seasons of Ireland, and St. Brigid’s Holy Well.
Entertainers included Hal Roach, Nightnoise, Sharon Shannon, Ivers and Egan, De Danann, Clancy Brothers with Robbie O’Connell, Frank Patterson, Schooner Fare, Kips Bay Ceili Band, Rawlins Cross, Wolfstone, McPeake Family, and The House Band. Dancers included Trinity Irish Dancers, Cashel Dennehy Irish Dancers, and Caledonian Scottish Dancers.
The Great American Hootenanny was in its third year and artists were Glenn Yarbrough, Brother Four and Schooner Fare.
