Blackthorn Folly is a five piece traditionally inspired band performing in the Milwaukee area. We play traditional Celtic and folk tunes with high energy and a ground stomping tempo. Give us a look and a listen!
We frequently play at Paddy’s Irish Pub, at 2339 N. Murray in Milwaukee.
Happy St. Paddy’s day to our current and future fans! It’s been a long weekend performing, but it’s been such a great joy to see you all out and having fun. We close out our holiday weekend playing at Paddy’s Irish Pub from 3-6 and County Clare from 10-1. We would all like to thank The Irish Pub on Water St, Bucky’s Lakeside Pub & Grill in Okauchee, and especially Paddy’s Irish Pub and County Clare Inn for giving us our first gigs and continuing to have us perform as the years progress. Most of all, we want to thank our fans for coming to see us (even when it’s an hour away)…we would be nothing without you.
Slainte and have a safe St. Paddy’s Day!
You might have noticed our recent videos — they’re courtesy of Brian Theisen, who studied film at the UWM Peck School of the Arts. Brian works on a number of independent projects in the Milwaukee area, and has traveled to Ireland for both specific and stock footage. Brian’s YouTube channel is linked on the right hand side of the page.
We’re grateful for Brian’s help — which has been gloriously pro-bono!
