Avourneen Announces Summer Festival Schedule
Denver-based Irish trio Avourneen has announced a busy summer schedule that includes appearances at three of Colorado’s most popular Celtic festivals.
In addition to their regular slate of performances at theaters, pubs and other venues around the Denver metro area, Avourneen will appear at the Pikes Peak Celtic Fest, the Colorado Fest and the Elizabeth Celtic Fest in June and July.
The 2018 Colorado Irish Fest scheduled for July 13-15 will feature Avourneen’s fourth consecutive appearance at the festival, one of the largest Celtic celebrations in the West. The Elizabeth Celtic Festival will host the band for the second time on July 22, and Avourneen will make their debut appearance at the Pikes Peak Celtic Fest for all three days of the festival, June 15, 16 and 17.
Avourneen will share the bill for these festivals with accomplished local and national acts.
“We are beyond honored to be included in the lineup for some of Colorado’s best Celtic celebrations,” said Avourneen guitarist and vocalist Adam Goldstein. “This gives us a chance to connect with new fans, as well as artists that we admire and respect.”
The summer dates will lead up to an equally busy fall and winter for the band, as they head out to appearances in New Mexico, Nebraska and several locales on the West Coast.

Avourneen to return to the Dubliner Pub in Omaha
Denver-based Irish trio Avourneen will wrap up the summer season with a two-night appearance at the Dubliner Pub in downtown Omaha on Aug. 24 and 25.
The performance will mark the trio’s fourth appearance at the historic pub, and will feature a mix of original music and refreshing takes on traditional Celtic standards, material that blends old-world traditions and innovative insights. “The Dubliner has become one of our favorite out-of-town venues,” says guitarist and vocalist Adam Goldstein. “We’ve come a long way since we played at the Dubliner last year, and we’re honored to be returning.”
This performance will spotlight the newest configuration of the band, composed of Adam Goldstein, CL Morden and relative newcomer Kenny Martinez. Since launching in 2014, Avourneen has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence in the Colorado Celtic music community. In addition to releasing their freshman album “Beloved” in 2014, the band has appeared in some of Colorado’s most prestigious folk music festivals, including the Colorado Irish Festival, the Elizabeth Celtic Festival and the Edgewater Celtic Festival.
