A special Celtic performance

7:30 pm - 9:00 pm 

Artists: Jason O'Rourke, Celtic Roses

Jason O'Rourke, a native of Belfast, is considered a master of the concertina for over 30 years. In his career, he has recorded eight albums, three of which are with his solo project. The latest of these, "The Sunny Side of the Latch," features ten tracks entirely composed by Jason, inspired by the neo-traditional Irish style.

Jacopo Ventura, a respected guitarist in the folk and traditional music scene, has been touring the world for two decades with ESG, Lyradanz, and other balfolk formations. He has been accompanying Jason O'Rourke on guitar for years. Their collaboration has led to the production of the album "The Sunny Side of the Latch." Jacopo is co-founder of Gadan, the first Italian band ever to perform at the Milwaukee Irish Festival.

Lorenzo Testa, a tenor banjo and mandolin player, is the founding member of the Celtic rock band Uncle Bard & The Dirty Bastards, the first Italian band ever to play at the Dublin Irish Festival in the USA. Together with Jacopo, he also co-founded Gadan, a groundbreaking new Irish trad formation, with four tours in the US under their belt and an extensive summer tour in 2024 with Enda Scahill of WeBanjo3, from Galway, Ireland.

Perla Davide, one of the finest and most renowned Irish dancers in Italy and beyond, has competed twice in the World Championships. She is also highly regarded as a choreographer and teacher. Despite her young age, over the years she has collaborated with artists from around the world, performed in festivals and venues all over Europe, and founded the dance company Celtic Roses.

Letizia Perin, co-founder of Celtic Roses project, is a professional dancer and teacher specialized in Irish dance, which she has practiced since a young age. She has been performing for over ten years in theaters and at some of the most important folk festivals in Italy and abroad.
