    Greene County Fair

    Downtown Dayton comes to life with the sights and sounds of Ireland, Scotland and Wales at
    the thirteenth Annual Dayton Celtic Festival. Three stages offer continuous live musical and
    dance entertainment with audience seating under-cover. Enjoy Celtic arts and language,
    cultural demonstrations, children’s activities, food, beverage, a Gaelic Mass and Celtic breakfast
    on Sunday and lots more FREE family-friendly fun!
    Headliner Bands:

    Gaelic Storm
    It has now been more than a decade since Gaelic Storm's career lifted off with their appearance in the blockbuster
    film Titanic. Since their big-screen debut over 10 years ago, the band's fan base continues to multiply with each new
    album, turning the one-time-pub-band into one of the premier touring acts in the Celtic/World music genre. Gaelic
    Storm's compelling originals and fresh arrangements steeped in Celtic traditional melody combined with their
    unique blend of world rhythms continue to broaden the musical horizons of the Celtic music genre creating new
    standards for generations to come. Highlights from their decade-spanning career include seven Billboard Chart
    topping albums, a DVD, a full-length concert film featured on HD.net in 2007-2008, song placement on two EA
    Sports Games, a 2008 Hallmark greeting card featuring their song "Kiss Me I'm Irish", countless television and radio appearances, and of course, an appearance in James Cameron's Titanic. Gaelic Storm has sold out hundreds of
    theatres and performing arts centers and has now played to audiences totaling in the millions.

    Scythian
    A Dayton Celtic Festival fan favorite! Rousing and raucous, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays kicked-up Celtic and world
    music with hints of Gypsy and Klezmer, all infused with a touch of punk-rock sensibility. Take a pair of classically
    trained dueling fiddlers, toss in a rhythm guitar and the occasional funky accordion, then power it with the driving
    rhythm of a jazz percussionist, and you've got the ingredients for a show you won't soon forget. Their high-energy,
    adrenaline-peddling, interactive brand of music has one goal in mind: to get people on their feet and dancing. Their
    repertoire ranges from traditional and contemporary Celtic and folk music to the alluring and dramatic strains of
    Gypsy and Eastern European tunes, and then crosses back over the border to pick up some good old-fashioned
    bluegrass licks.

    Socks in the Frying Pan
    Socks in the Frying Pan will make their US festival debut at the 2014 Dayton Celtic Festival. The band comprises two
    brothers, Shane and Fiachra Hayes on accordion and fiddle/banjo and accompanied by Aodán Coyne on guitar and
    vocals. This young trad trio from Country Clare blends Irish traditional melodies with and innovative rhythmic and
    melodic garnish. These socks are audibly palatable! As for the inevitable question of where the name originated?
    This is yet to be disclosed!

    Having gained a fan-base from four years of gigging around the west of Ireland, this exciting group has recently
    started branching out and has been well received for their modern traditional style and energetic approach to
    music. This, combined with an acoustic musical interplay, three-part harmony and an obvious love for live
    performance, compliments the traditional essence of both tune and songs in a fresh and entertaining way. Their
    debut CD was launched at the Ennis Trad Festival in November and was received very well with an audience
    exceeding the capacity of the venue. The CD itself offers a dozen lovingly crafted tracks which the lads are eager to
    showcase both on the album and at their musically charged gigs.

    FullSet
    FullSet is quickly becoming one of the most well known bands in the Irish music scene today. In October 2011 they
    were honored by being announced as the winners of the RTÉ/RAAP Breakthrough Annual Music Bursary Award.
    Having been shortlisted along with 12 other groups in 4 different categories ahead of a field of almost 800 other
    groups and artists. This has given the group huge exposure and the opportunity to begin work on a second album.
    To date, FullSet has performed at various festivals and venues across Europe including the Kann al Loar folk festival
    in Landerneau, Brittany, and also the Festival Interceltique de Lorient. During this time they have shared the stage
    with some of the biggest names in folk and world music including Moya Brennan, Fred Morrison, Lúnasa, Carlos
    Núnez, Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny and Beoga.
