Michigan Irish Music Festival: Hackley Hooley
September 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm
“Hackley Hooley” brings Irish music and culture to Hackley Park in Downtown Muskegon on September 18th…and LOOK at that lineup!!!!
A unique variety of tunes
𝐎𝐍𝐄 𝐅𝐎𝐑 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐅𝐎𝐗𝐄𝐒
This exciting and dynamic transatlantic trio presents a rousing blend of Irish and American folk music. They offer both traditional and newly composed music, presented in an energetic and engaging manner.
Runa breathes fresh life into traditional Celtic music by digging into the songs and tunes to find the universal thread that binds past to present. Contemporary Celtic music at its very best.
A fan favorite, Seamus’ trademark is his ongoing interaction with the audiences. Fast-paced humor is very much a part of what Seamus does, whether he’s telling a series of rapid-fire jokes or launching into a lyrical parody.
Hackley Hooley will also feature cultural displays and shopping offerings from Irish vendors. Patrons can expect their favorite Irish food and beverages, including craft beer, whiskey, Budweiser, and MI Irish Stout, a Pigeon Hill Brewing Company original brew.
Along with presenting sponsor Family Financial Credit Union, major sponsors for Hackley Hooley include Budweiser, Van’s Car Wash & Quick Lube, G&L Chili Dogs, and the Mart Dock.
“We are excited to produce and offer a hybrid, one-day event that is still aligned with our mission: to promote Irish culture and heritage while enhancing the community through entertainment, tourism, education, and philanthropy,” said Chris Zahrt, MIMF President. “Though we had to cancel the usual four-day festival in our traditional format due to a variety of factors – from international travel restrictions to uncertainty surrounding the
pandemic – we can’t wait to welcome our patrons to a full day of Irish fun at Hackley Hooley.”
Hackley Hooley will present live music by four outstanding bands on the Hackley Park main stage:
