Delaware Irish Fest at World Cafe Live at the Queen

Come one, come all to Delaware’s premiere Irish and Celtic music festival at World Cafe Live at the Queen featuring Black 47, The Young Dubliners, The John Byrne Band, Mythica with Melissa Cox and Burning Bridget Cleary!

With roving bagpipers and Irish jiggers performing throughout the venue, you’ll have access to fantastic Irish music, culture and food in both Upstairs and Downstairs Live throughout the entire evening.

Black 47

Black 47 espouses an unblinkingly political and thoroughly Irish form of rock 'n' roll, with songs covering topics from the Northern Ireland conflict to civil rights and urban unrest in contemporary New York. Black 47 earned their chops playing the pub scene in Manhattan and self-producing their first indie record, Black 47, before converting The Cars' Ric Ocasek to the cause and gaining mainstream attention with their second album. The band celebrates their 20th year on the road with their latest album "Bankers and Gangsters"

The Young Dubliners

As their name suggests, The Young Dubliners are a band comprised of several Dublin natives blend traditional Irish music with rock n’ roll to create a jam-friendly sound. For over fifteen years the group has toured, recorded and performed to growing audiences. Their latest album, “Saints and Sinners,” finds the Dubliners pushing themselves as songwriters, creating one of their finest records to date.

The John Byrne Band

The John Byrne Band is led by former Patrick's Head front man and Dublin native John Byrne. His first solo effort, After the Wake, was released to great critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic in 2010. With influences ranging from The Chieftains to Planxty to Bob Dylan, John's songwriting honors and expands upon the musical and lyrical traditions of his native and adopted homes.

Mythica & Melissa Cox

Mythica was started in 2005 by Melissa Cox, the lead singer of the band. Armed with an arsenal of instruments including the fiddle, hammered dulcimer, mandolin, guitar, haunting female vocals and more, Mythica fuses Celtic genres with rock, bluegrass, funk, and New Age, creating a sound that can be described as Celtic and World Fusion.

Burning Bridget Cleary

Known for their captivating sound and engaging stage presence, Burning Bridget Cleary is currently one of the hottest acts on the Celtic and folk music circuits. Band-leader Rose Baldino drives this band, delivering a dynamic blend of charisma, crackerjack fiddle work, and tightly woven harmonies. She's joined by fiddler and vocalist, Amy Beshara, from the NYC Scottish music scene. The driving rhythm and bass end is supplied by Lou Baldino on guitar and Peter Trezzi on percussion. Their latest CD, “These Are the Days,” was the #1 Album on the January 2016 Folk-DJ Charts. Says Jack Baker of The Irish American News, "This is trad music at its best; alive, vibrant and lyrical. Don't miss seeing this band."
