Irish in America with Mary King

Come join us as Mary King, Cathy Clasper-Torch, and Dan Lanier take us on a musical journey celebrating the ‘Irish in America‘!

Irish immigrants captured the heart of the nation with their mix of Irish jigs, ballads, folk songs, storytelling and humor. Their music was influenced from their travels throughout New England, the Midwest, Appalachia and the West. Their Celtic traditions were infused with new styles and instruments creating a new voice to their culture, along with the old. Get your green on, warm up your voices and enjoy the warmth, spirit and hilarity of the ‘Irish in America’. (Mary King often teaches a beginning Irish jig before the start of each program).
This event is free and open to the public. Limited seating available, first come, first served.
