Description

This St. Patrick’s Day concert features fiddles, uilleann pipes, whistles, flutes, Irish harp, bodhráns, storytelling, singing, and the brilliance of Irish dance. Prepare to participate in a good old-fashioned Irish sing-along led by Dubliner Laura Turner.

Not to be missed, this event was a sellout last year and is sure to be a repeat performance this year. Faith n Begorra to you all and stay clear of those mischievous little leprechauns. You’re invited to be “Citizens of Ireland” for the day!
