- Red Hot Chilli Pipers - Dave Curley & Mick Broderick
- Socks in the Frying Pan - House of Hamill
- The Byrne Brothers - Ryan Young

“We’re very happy to bring back the group our guests request most often – the Red Hot Chilli Pipers,” said Entertainment Chair Tom McConnaughay. “Along with other returning favorites – Socks in the Frying Pan, The Byrne Brothers, and Dave Curley and Mick Broderick - they all have a following in Peoria and will deliver exactly the performances our guests expect from our fest.

“Celtic music comes in so many varieties and we try to offer something for everyone. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are a superstar group of what they call Bag Rock. Shane Hennessey has been called one of the most exciting performers of his generation by Irish Music Magazine. And House of Hamill from Philadelphia and Ryan Young of Scotland bring the variety of musical styles that many of our fest friends seek.”

The Peoria Irish Fest is the largest Illinois Celtic festival outside of Chicago. Tickets at the door will cost $15, with a three-day Event Pass for $30. Discounted tickets are available online now, and kids under 12 are always free.

About the band: JuJu Jonny
For over a decade, JuJu Jonny has been traveling the Midwest, sharing what they call ”Hot Rod Blues from The UnderGround”, because it was born in a basement with the pedal always to the floor. Band members are Tony ‘T-Bone’ Suits (guitars, vocals), Dan ‘Big Daddy’ Carroll (bass, vocals) and Gus ‘Primo’ Zacarias (drums, percussion, vocals). Whether performing a blues classic, a danceable cover or one of many original tunes, their audience is left longing for more. Check out www.jujujonny.com.

Special thanks to Dan Winston (Danny Grooves), Dakota Conover (20Twenty), Sean McCarthy (The Car Thief/Pleasure/Esemde), and Barb (Mama2Times) for helping put this vision together and do something great in the name for someone who did so much for all of us, as well as everyone else in the music scene.
