The Irish in America with Mary, Cathy, and Ed

Come join us for a musical journey celebrating the "Irish in American" with Mary King, Cathy Clasper-Torch, and Ed Sweeney.  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).

All ages are welcome to this free family friendly program but space is limited. Registration is required. Please call the Library at 683-9457 or sign up below.
