Past Performers 2005-date

          Wanted: 2005-date official Festival Programs or posters. As this Festival has directly conflicted with the Shawano Folk Music Festival since its inception, I cannot attend this festival. Does anyone have an extra program or poster they don't want for any of these years? I will pay postage (in U.S. funds only). Otherwise, is there anyone in the Oshkosh, WI area who would like to loan me their copies so I can complete this page with ALL appearances by EVERY performer since 2005? - henkle@pobox.com

Keep these dates open for future Irish Fest-La Crosse's:
    August 13-15, 2010 (6th)
    August 12-14, 2011 (7th)
    August 10-12, 2012 (8th)
    August 9-11, 2013 (8th)
    Remember: these are deliberately scheduled to always be the exact same dates as the Shawano Folk Music Festival (i.e. you are forbidden to attend both Festivals, even if you would really like to).

          Actually, even if this festival did not deliberately conflict with the Shawano Folk Festival (a 120 mile round trip at 1/3 the gas cost), I still could not go to it. I attended the Great River Folk Festival almost every year 1997-2002, but 2003 and all summer gas prices since then have made a 360 mile round trip to La Crosse for any reason, permanently, at least so far, unacceptably unaffordable.
