So most of you have heard Heather playing Celtic music with us, but did you know that she also excels at Old Timey and Bluegrass music. This is a rare opportunity to catch two of her other groups at once; Brewtown Brewgrass and Dairyland's Finest String Band.

This Sunday starting at 6:00 at Anodyne. Tickets are $10 through Eventbrite or $15 at the door. We highly recommend you go experience this event. You won’t have any regrets. 🙂

A massive "Thank you" to the Wisconsin Highland Games for inviting us back to perform for the event today. We had a great time and hope the audience enjoyed themselves as well. Another big shoutout to Olivia Langby for filling in for Heather. We know it was pretty short-notice and you rocked!

Thank you all again and we hope to see y'all next year!

Blackthorn Folly is feeling concerned.
Well, it's been a rough week since Irish Fest. Our own Heather Lewin has been in the hospital with a nasty, respiratory, virus since Tuesday. Heather is an extremely valuable member of Blackthorn Folly and every one of us is concerned about her health.

Her family has setup a GoFundMe page to help out with the hospital bills (which are increasing every day) so if any of our fans have a few dollars (or more) to spare it would be extremely appreciated.

We're all hoping for a speedy recovery and love you very much Heather. <3

Blackthorn Folly is feeling grateful.
Another year in the books. Our most heartfelt gratitude to Milwaukee Irish Fest and all of the staff and volunteers that make that festival happen. We take great pride in being invited to perform there amongst such fantastic performers. 🙂

A huge thanks to our fans, old and new, that braved the heat at the Vizzy stage Sunday to come and see us. We know it was uncomfortable and you're all the best for sticking it out! <3

What's next on the docket you ask? Why, it's the Wisconsin Highland Games! You can catch us there on September 3rd inside the Arena at Young's Pub from 4:15pm to 5:30pm.

A little last-day-of-Irish-Fest humor for you all. We’re taking over the Vizzy Hard Seltzer (Klement’s by the North Gate) stage at 5:15pm today. Come on over for some great music and fun! We’re looking forward to seeing you all there.
