Sweeney, Evans and Doherty
Tom Sweeney, from Omagh, Northern Ireland, envelops the very essence of Irish culture into his performances. Inspired by his grandmother, the late Sarah Makem, the great ballad tradition was instilled in him from boyhood. Sweeney carries with him an endless amount of songs, stories, poetry and tunes. His shows run the gamut of emotion, fun and Irish history.
Kevin Evans and Brian Doherty have been an integral part of the Canadian East Coast music scene for more than 20 years. Evans & Doherty perform a lively blend of traditional, original and contemporary songs, with a liberal sprinkle of stories and humor. The duos’ resonant guitars and rich harmonies have been set down on ten CDs recorded over their 26 year career. As regular performers at Milwaukee Irish Fest, Evans & Doherty are one of the festival’s favorite folk music performers.
This year they'll be performing songs of Tommy Makem as a tribute to the wonderful folk/ballad singer-songwriter, who passed on 10 years ago.
