The first annual Clumsy Fest is happening right here in Boise this Friday the 15th, featuring The Clumsy Lovers! Warming up the show will be the fantastic Irish group The Giant Leprechauns, including for her first time as a Leprechaun herself, Rachel Dunn! (Who, me? Shoot, surely looks like it!)
The Clumsy Lovers have brought their mix of fiddle and banjo-fuelled, bluegrassified Celtic rock to North American audiences for over a decade. With more than 2500 performances under their belts, their high-energy shows have worn out dance floors and created a loyal following in 49 states and across their homeland of Canada. The San Antonio Express-News review says: “Their fusion of bluegrass and Celtic with a rock attitude is the soundtrack for a kinetic show that has helped the band become a favorite of the roots music crowd.”
I had the immense pleasure of dancing for the Giant Leprechauns at Curtis Stiger’s Xtreme Holiday Xtravaganza last December and have been fiddling with them at the Ha’Penny sessions for over five years. It was a real honor when Dave Daley asked me to become a Giant Leprechaun a few weeks ago! Also joining us will be Michelle Estrada with her incredible vocal talents. You will not want to miss this!
The music kicks off at 7:00 with an open jam followed by the Giant Leprechauns on stage at 8:00. It’s all happening at Humpin’ Hannah’s on Main St.! Get directions here: Directions to Hannah’s
I’m super excited for this show and can’t wait to see you there!
