Ireland's Highly Acclaimed: RUAILE BUAILE to play Calais During the International Festival!


Calais Celtic Concerts will present Ireland's hot young Trad/Pop/Folk band Ruaile Buaile, (pronounced: Roo-lee ah, Boo lee ah) in concert at The Calais High School, Saturday night of The International Festival, August 12th, at 7:00 p.m. US/ 8:00 p.m. Canadian time. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. EST. This will be the group's first U.S. East Coast tour, and the group is red hot right now, with their latest youtube, well over one million views!

Ruaile Buaile are a dynamic 4-piece band playing their unique style, infused with up-beat Irish folk. They are a young band from the midlands of Ireland. All aged in their early twenties, in the few short years since they formed Ruaile Buaile, Niall Kelly, Arthur Stones, Jack Godley and Shane Lynam, have gone from being considered a highly thought-of young local act, to being a wanted band, the length and breath of Ireland. And not only Ireland, as it happens. The lads have also taken their brand of high-energy Celtic you-name-it-they've-got-it style of music to many countries in Europe, as well as the United States, and even the Middle East!

It sometimes happens that way in music, but not very often. They have played before 90,000 people at Kansas City Irish Fest, traveled extensively through all corners of the States, Entertained crowds in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Germany, Holland, Spain, France, Italy, Wales and this coming year have a huge summer tour to the States and early 2018 sees them embark on a tour through Asia. Back home in Ireland, they are encouraging young musicians to play and enjoy traditional Irish and folk music which has been in major decline. They recently were invited to Dail to perform with some of Ireland's leading talent in order to claim a quota of Irish Music to be played on our national broadcasting stations. In between all this they have supported and played alongside some of Ireland's top entertainers such as, Nathan Carter, Sharon Shannon, De Dannan, Stocktons Wing, Solas, We Banjo 3, Damian Dempsey, John Sheehan, Moxie and many more.

The Calais High School is located at 34 Blue Devil Hill, Calais, ME., right off of Route one driving south out of Calais. Tickets are $20 adult, $5 for 15 years and under. Kids will enjoy this show, and feed off  the energy of these Irish Lads. Pre-show tickets are on sale at Karen's Diner and Korner Pub, downtown Calais.
