The Skinny & Houli Show Return to Ireland Tour will feature special musical guest Katie Grennan on the tour with Chicago’s favorite Irish-American radio personalities. Katie Grennan is a champion Irish dancer and fiddler featured in the August issue of Irish Dancing Magazine and tours regularly all over the world as an Irish dancer and fiddle player.

The tour is an annual event for listeners to the popular radio program and this year the group flies out of Chicago on October 16th for a whirlwind tour of the Emerald Isle, including stops in Dublin, Belfast, Derry, Donegal, and two final nights in Killiney at the fabled Fitzpatrick Castle.

Katie’s roots are in County Mayo and she has been performing and teaching Irish dance and music since childhood. She is champion Irish dancer and fiddler and has performed professionally in various dance companies in both the US and Europe and toured most recently with Women of Ireland. Katie has appeared on The Skinny & Houli Show several times and will be previewing her act Wednesday night August 13th on the show at Lizzie McNeill’s in Chicago for broadcast the weekend of Aug. 16 & 17th.

The Skinny & Houli Show is celebrating their 5th year on the air this September and invite all friends to join them in Ireland from October 16-23rd with Katie Grennan. Seats are limited!
