Erin Feis, Peoria’s festival of traditional Irish music; The Shanties

August 25, 2011

Erin Feis in Peoria is a major festival of traditional Irish music, drawing bands from around the world and featuring local groups as well. The event happens this weekend. On the Thursday edition of "Live and Local," I'll talk with a member of the very young band from Ireland called Goitse [pronounced gwi-cha], and we'll hear the Bloomington-Normal-based band The Shanties, live in our studio.
