When the universe decided to plant The Big Irish Fair right in the middle of my birthday weekend, it was giving me a gift. The festival may not have the most original name on the planet, but it certainly seems like there’s truth in their advertising. There are 15 different stages for music – everything from Traditional Irish seisiúns and Bagpipe Battles to more modern Irish rock bands, including one of my favorites – the Young Dubliners.
It seems like a lot of fun for anyone into Irish music. I thought I’d share it in case there are any readers in Southern California – or anyone that wants to journey there for a weekend, like we are. I hope it’s as fun as it sounds. It’s in Long Beach on June 20th and 21st. For more info, click here.
