Irish and world music to uplift your mood

For generations and all over the world, musicians have been picking tunes on the front porch of their homes. This show is about literally and figuratively getting out on the front porch and listening to the music of the world as your diverse neighborhood. No matter how down you may feel, you are never alone. Open your ears, eyes and heart to the world on your front porch.

About Paddygrass and Derek Byrne

Paddygrass plays kickass Celtic Bluegrass and Gospel featuring a collective of Wisconsin's best Irish Musicians. Paddygrass shows are spontaneous and no matter how many times you see them perform, there is always something new to discover! Whatever happens, their music will move you to sing, dance, be merry and forget all else. Paddygrass founder Derek Byrne left Ireland at the age of 21 and toured the world with Riverdance as a singer and musician for 6 years. He met his wife Carrie backstage in Milwaukee, settled here and has been a feature of the Irish Scene since 2001. His songs are inspired by the love of his wife, children and Ireland.

About Milwaukee Irish Dance Company
The Milwaukee Irish Dance Company (MIDC) was created by Elyse Transon in 2014 to provide performance opportunities for adult Irish dancers in the Milwaukee area and beyond. The goal of MIDC is to present Irish dance in new and exciting ways while pushing the limits of traditional Irish dance. We welcome anyone with prior Irish dance experience to join the company!
