The Sugarloaf troupe had a busy few days with 3 consecutive concerts in Derry and Ballymena (Northern Ireland) and Wexford (Ireland), which required over 7 hours of bus travel! Despite the grueling schedule, Sugarloaf Mountain still captivated audiences with its warmth and fiery spirit. One patron noted “Thanks to Apollo’s Fire for brightening up a dull cloudy evening in Wexford.”
The next stage of the tour involves the group splitting off in multiple directions. Several musicians are on their way home to Cleveland today, while others go onto the next stop in Tuscany for a performance at the Paesaggi Musicali Toscani (Tuscan Landscapes Festival). The next time the Sugarloaf troupe will reunite is in Cleveland for Christmas On Sugarloaf Mountain concerts in December!
