Glen Ayre is a trio of professional musicians playing fiddle, flute, and guitar. They champion the traditional music of Scotland and Ireland as well as its American and Provincial derivatives. They are known for their masterful performances of the most popular Ballads, Airs and Ditties, the wild and reeling Dance Music, Songs and Tunes old and new, traditional and original. For an hour or an evening, acoustic or amplified, listeners delight in their stirring remembrances of the Emerald Isle, Olde Caledonia and, of course, North Amerikay executed with energy, style and dexterity. Based in the western suburbs of Chicago, Glen Ayre is a favorite at many venues and events including the Chicago Celtic Fest, the University of Chicago Folk Festival, the Fox Valley Folk Festival, The Two-Way Street Coffee House, and the Illinois St. Andrew’s Society Scottish Festival & Highland Games as well as their annual Robert Burns Dinner, to name but a few.
