Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the legendary folklorist, bandleader, and National Heritage Award-winner Mick Moloney leads a talented cast of world musicians, singers, and dancers in our fifth annual Celtic Appalachian celebration.
David Bing and the High Ridge Ramblers’ West Virginian mountain blend of banjo, fiddle, and guitar will showcase the beauty, history, and fun-loving nature of Appalachia with twisty mountain tunes, early bluegrass ballads, old-time songs, and hard-driving fiddle tunes.
Anchored by the beloved Green Fields of America—one of the nation’s best-known and longest running Irish American groups—the evening includes songs from traditional and original folk duet Murphy Beds, and rhythmic steps from dancers Shannon Dunne and Megan Downes for a rousing tribute to the thriving Irish and Appalachian musical traditions.
