In 2016, Rory Makem surprised the crowd by joining Donal Clancy on stage to perform a few tunes together. This was their first ever public performance as a duo. We're honored and excited to have these two wonderful musicians at Irish Fest as an official duo in 2017!
Please wait while we gather your results.
From Tommy Makem to Gaelic Storm, hear the music from the artists and musicians who have performed at Milwaukee Irish Fest through the years!
