Character Fleadh

Since its formation in 2008, Character Fleadh has performed at Irish bars, weddings, colleges, and festivals throughout Chicago and the midwest.

Founder Ethan Sellers has guided the band through a number of line-up changes while maintaining a top-quality ensemble comprised of some of the Chicago area's finest Irish and Scottish musicians.

Character Fleadh's past gigs include Gaelic Park Irish Fest in Oak Forest, Nevin's Pub in Evanston, Beverly Arts Center, Fiddler's Hearth in South Bend, Durty Nellie's in Palatine, Loyola University Chicago, Kalamazoo College, Palatine's inaugural Irish Parade, the Skokie Festival of Cultures, Irish Oak in Lakeview, Molly Malone's in Forest Park, Hidden Shamrock in Lincoln Park, College of Lake County, Duke's Alehouse in Crystal Lake, Lincolnwood Public Library, and many others.

The group's two most recent recordings enjoy airplay on Irish music specialty shows on WHPK, WDCB, and WEFT.

The band will leverage its experience, media contacts, and mailing list to promote all of its public performances.

The band can play completely acoustically, bring its own sound system and technician, or use the venue's.
