Very enjoyable evening of songs and stories. We moved at the intermission from front to side due to an annoying drunk behind us, but found that the cast played well to all sides. The sound was good, but some of the lyrics were hard to catch. ...continued

It was wonderful from beginning to end. Each of the performers had great voices that complimented each other and we hated to see it end.

This was a Christmas gift to my husband ... he loved every minute.

It was beautiful and the singers voices were so good.It brought me back to my childhood with my parents listening to Irish music. You wanted to tap and sing along with the songs. I learned a little about Ireland's history also at the same time....continued
