THUNDER BAY – George Millar of the Irish Rovers will be playing in Thunder Bay this weekend as a part of Celtic Fest at Fort William Historical Park. The iconic Millar took some time for a chat with NetNewsledger.com to share some of the past and present plans and memories.

The Irish Rovers are a Canadian fixture with millions of Canadians remembering Sunday nights where the television schedule on the CBC was Walt Disney World, The Beachcombers, and the Irish Rovers.
