The Milwaukee Irish Fest Foundation was formed in 1994 to advance the charitable and educational purposes for which Irish Festivals, Inc. was originally formed. Since its creation, the Irish Fest Foundation has granted more than $500,000 to non-profit entities in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Canada and throughout the United States.
August 15 – 6pm | Milwaukee Irish Fest Foundation presents
With numerous accolades and high-profile appearances to his credit, producer and percussionist Shreem (Jay Andrews) has established himself as one of Canada’s finest musicians. Shreem’s cutting-edge style creates a fiery and fresh new sound by blending Celtic, electronic, hip-hop and other contemporary music styles with hard-hitting drums and powerful, warm melodies. Through vocal sampling, looping, beat boxing and live musicianship, Shreem has captivated audiences with his modern spin on traditional Celtic music.
Jiggy continue the tradition of their musical ancestors while bringing a whole new exotic flavor to the table. More of a collective than an orthodox band, Jiggy’s mercurial line-up mixes and melds Irish traditional music, world rhythms and cutting-edge dance grooves. They took the internet by storm with their video ‘Silent Pace’ celebrating the togetherness of dance and to date has clocked up more than 22 million views. Their debut album Translate went Number 1 on the world music charts in Ireland, United States, Canada, France, Australia, Poland & the UK.
