August was a great month for the Chillis. We performed gigs in Scotland, England, Germany and America all in 4 weeks!
Our USA tour started in Missoula, Montana. The event took place beside Clark Fork River, which we went for a swim in between sound check and the gig. It was nice returning to USA to perform at Dublin Irish Fest, a fantastic weekend in Ohio. The sun was shining, the crowds were superb – we loved being back. Another festival we performed at was Milwaukee Irish Festival. We love that festival so much that we recorded our acclaimed DVD ‘Live at the Lake’ there in 2014. It was great to play alongside our great friends Skerryvore, We Banjo 3 and Gaelic Storm.
We also played our first ever show in Indianna at a nice country town called Evansville. The venue, Victory Theatre, was stunning – one of the nicest we have ever performed in! We were also lucky to perform at the launch of Westmoor Golf Club, a beautiful golf course in Wisconsin. They invited us for a round but unfortunately couldn’t fit it in with our schedule. I hope the offer still remains when we return next time… Ha.
