Michigan Irish Music Festival Thank You

Mona Shores Fiddlers 2017

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!

So before going any further on behalf of all The Fiddlers, we would like to Thank the MIMF for once again including the Fiddlers to the Fest. Its an incredible honor to be able to perform along side these gifted musicians, to be able to play for our community, and to be included such an amazing festival. Thank you, thank you, thank you can not be said enough to be apart of MIMF.

The crowd was made up friends, family, members from other groups performing at MIMF and the MIMF community at large getting comments on Social Media as “Awesome”, “Amazing”,”Talented” and “the Mona Shores Kids Rock!!!!”

2015 Michigan Irish Music Festival has now come to a close. This weekend the MIMF hosted many bands from Ireland such as The High Kings, We Banjo 3, Slide and to bands from right here here in West Michigan like Moxie Strings, Peat in the Creel, and Crossbow to name a few. The weekend was filled with great music and fun times.

A very BIG Thank You to Michigan Irish Music Festival for inviting the Mona Shores Fiddlers to kick off the last day of the Festival. Its become a tradition the Fiddlers really enjoy. Its wonderful seeing old friends, past MSOPA members, Fiddler/Orchestra alumni and past Mona Shores Fiddle Fest guest bands at the Fiddler Performance.

Here are a few pictures from todays performance. more pictures can be viewed on our Flicker Page, a link is on the side of this page or below for mobil users.
