With Aslan confirmed to perform on Saturday, June 25, and now The Whistlin’ Donkeys on Thursday June 23rd, The Old Fort Quarter Festival promises to the biggest yet!

Set up in 2012, the Whistlin’ Donkeys grew in popularity with their release of singles like ‘Fairytale of NewYork’, ‘Trouble with a Capital T’, ‘Grace’, and ‘Sweet Sixteen’.

Enquiries started to flood in and interest in the band grew from countries like Germany, Holland, England and the United States, leading to a number of overseas tours. 

Over the last few years the band have played many shows in New York, Boston, Liverpool, London, Bälve and Poyenberg Germany, bringing their version of Celtic folk classics to audiences far from the emerald Isle.
