August 14 through 17 will be the dates for this year's
Milwaukee Irish Fest, and as always your green-striped
Peasant shall be on hand, working as a volunteer at the
music booth by the Aer Lingus Stage for the sixth
consecutive year! I received my 5-year pin last year,
and I am planning to be at that booth every year for
the rest of my life!
Now, the first day is a Thursday, as is the usual with
the festival. So that week, I shall post a day or two
before the day in question; you won't have to be
without your weekly dose of precise, hard-hitting,
insightful analysis and commentary on the political
and economic news of the day from your favorite
Peasant. And we shall gather together again on the
following Thursday, our regular meeting day.
If any of you, my great and wonderful readers, wish
to attend Milwaukee's Irish Fest, here's a link for the
information you'll need:
And while you're there, stop by the Aer Lingus music
booth and say hello! Ask for Mark Minor at the booth,
I'll be on hand selling CDs and DVDs along with posters
and any other goodies brought by the bands playing on
the Aer Lingus stage, and coordinating the after-concert
autograph sessions with the performers. The Milwaukee
Irish Fest is the largest Irish festival in the United States,
and it is the closest thing to actually travelling to the
Emerald Isle itself! Come on over and see for yourselves!
You'll be so glad you did!
