***CONTEST NOW CLOSED***
It’s time to give away more tickets from one of my favorite HeidiTown sponsors, Rocky Mountain Irish Festival!
First, let me tell you about the band line up. If you enjoy Celtic music, you won’t want to miss this event.
The High Kings (www.TheHighKings.com)
The music starts on Thursday, August 25 at the Budweiser Events Center with The High Kings. All the way from Ireland, The High Kings will light up the venue with their unique brand of Irish ballads. This band has been featured on television numerous times and has even played for Obama. They are the hottest thing out there and now they are coming to Loveland, Colorado. This is a ticketed event and you can purchase yours at www.RockyMountainIrishFestival.com.
On Friday night, there’s another special event, The Tossers will be on the Rocky Mountain Irish Festival’s Main Stage at Boardwalk Park in Windsor, Colorado. For $25 you can see The Tossers, an Irish punk band, plus the Young Dubliners and a special Beetles tribute.
On Saturday and Sunday the musical lineup is divine. In the queue, Searson, three Canadian sisters who put on a high powered Celtic show. The Prodigals, an Irish rock band, will literally blow your kilt up. If you enjoy “Celtic mayhem” than The Brazen Heads is the band for you. Originally based out of Boston, the band now hails from Arizona and were the “surprise hit” of the Rocky Mountain Irish Festival in 2009.
Other bands who will strut their Celtic stuff at this year’s festival are Stephen’s Green, Green Tea, The Indulgers, Gerry Carthy, Roger Drawdy & the Firestarters, and Sligo Rags. Local bands include Juice of the Barley, The Commoners, Skean Dubh, Chancer’s Hooley, and Meadowlark.
Phew! That’s a whole lot of fiddling fun!
So here’s how to enter to win 4 pairs of tickets to witness this amazing musical lineup and attend the most kick arse Irish festival in Colorado. Just leave me a comment here telling me your favorite musical instrument.
This week I’m going to draw the name on Thursday at 4 p.m., because my Friday schedule is a little crazy.
