This year at the Sparta Celtic we had some true Irish weather with some needed steady rain, unfortunately it came a day too soon, but that did not stop the Fiddlers or the Sparta Celtic Fest. The Fiddlers moved from main stage to the beverage tent so the Fiddlers and the audience could be dry.
It might have been a bit cooler and damp but it was a warm reception from Sparta. Thank you to the Sparta Celtic Fest for the invite once again and look forward to being back next year!

A week ago today the Mona Shores Fiddlers performed at the 2018 Michigan Irish Music Fest. Once again it was a privilege and honor to perform at such an amazing fest with so many talented musicians and a fest that does so much for our community. Thank you to all the volunteers that make the MIMF a reality and all the MSO parents that make the Fiddle program possible.
We are looking forward to our own 17th Annual Fiddle Fest on November 10th, 2018. Special guests include Grand Haven High School Orchestra’s Gotak, North Muskegon Orchestra’s Fiddle players, and very special guests Uneven Ground!

We would like to publicly thank everyone that made the Michigan Irish Music Festival an incredible weekend for the Fiddlers.
Thank you to the Michigan Irish Music Festival for again inviting the Fiddlers to perform at this incredible event. It’s an honor to be able to play at the same venue with such amazing musicians from around the world right here in Muskegon.
Thank you to parents, families, friends, and Mona Shores Alumni that came out to support the Fiddlers. Playing to a full, friendly house was a blast! All the weekly rehearsals have paid off.
Thank you to the very talented sound crew! It’s alway nice to perform when we have friendly and knowledgeable audio engineers!
Over the weekend we shared many more pictures and videos of the MIMF on our Instagram and Facebook pages – too many to re-post here. We also shared that The Founding (formerly Blarney Castle) will be our special guest at the 16th Annual Fiddle Festival. More Fiddle Fest information coming soon.
If you missed the Fiddlers this past weekend you can catch them this Friday, Sept 22, 2017, at the Mona Shores High School Homecoming Tailgate Party!
