St. Paddy's Celebration

Get into the St. Paddy's spirit with Luck of the Irish, an exuberant celebration of music, stories, and entertainment steeped in the joyful energy of the Emerald Isle. Luck of the Irish features lively stories, rowdy songs, a dash of cheeky Irish humor, and fabulous raffle prizes. The evening's host is Brian Ó hAirt, an expert in traditional Irish sean-nos singing and dancing, a fluent Irish Gaelic speaker, and the only American singer to ever win the coveted senior title in traditional singing at the Irish Music Awards. Honoring Ireland's storytelling tradition, Urban Teller Beth Rogers and founders Lawrence Howard and Lynne Duddy will share real, true stories flavored by the Emerald Isle. Jim Loewenherz and Brenda Scearcy, as the duo Innisfree, will perform traditional Irish music sure to put a spring in your step. Grab a beer and celebrate Irish heritage with Luck of the Irish.
