Emmet Cahill To Perform At Dublin Irish Festival

Emmet Cahill
Emmet Cahill will perform on the Dublin Irish Festival's Irish Thunder stage on August 3 and 4.

Tenor Emmet Cahill began performing at a young age and has gained international fame as part of Celtic Thunder and as a solo performing.  Ahead of his performance at the Dublin Irish Festival, the Dear Green Place host Cindy Funk spoke with Cahill by phone about his work with Celtic Thunder and his solo performances, his latest travels and more.

The Dublin Irish Festival is August 2 - 4 in Dublin, Ohio.  Learn more at: https://dublinirishfestival.org/

Cindy Funk has been a lover of folk music of all kinds for so long, she can barely remember when she got hooked. But it's a good bet that it was WYSO that is responsible! In the 1980's, Cindy hosted a Celtic music show on WYSO called "Shamrocks, Heather and Roses" until 1987. In the meantime, she was busy performing in the folk group Sweetwater, that played all around the Midwest. Then, in 2005, Cindy reappeared on WYSO's airwaves with her new show - "The Dear Green Place" - like the earlier show, filled with the traditional and contemporary Celtic music that she loves so much.
