2015 Irish Music Festival Headliners
Seán Keane: Seán Keane from County Galway is described as the `greatest musical find of the 90`s` by `The London Independent`.
Seán Keane is a singer and multi-instrumentalist of skill, acclaim and flair. He is rooted firmly in old Ireland with the Keane family tradition of seanos singing , but his music branches out gloriously from those roots pulling sustenance from many genres. Seán's voice has untold depth, range and maturity; his skill on the flute, whistles and pipes with which he punctuates songs, make his work unforgettable.
Celtica Pipes Rock: From Vienna, Austria, Celtica Pipes Rock showcases their unique sound of blazing bagpipes, mighty drums and the power of a rock band, CELTICA takes by storm all audiences from Highland Games and town festivals, to bankers and punk rockers. In addition to their high-energy music and fire juggling, flamethrowers on their instruments guarantee an exciting show: an event that‘s sure to please all the senses!
2015 will herald the 12th year of the Galway Bay Irish Music Festival, celebrating Irish songs, ballads, players and bands that will be flooding Ocean Shores, WA with music and fun for five days this October.
The Festival begins the evening of Wednesday, October 21st, 2015 and lasts until Sunday, October 25th, 2015. An eclectic mix of Irish bands, choirs and dancers hailing from throughout the United States, Canada and, of course, Ireland will be rounding out this year's entertainment.
