Legendary musician, folklorist and National Heritage Award-winner Mick Moloney once again leads a talented cast of world musicians, singers, and dancers in our third annual Celtic Appalachian celebration.

The Green Fields of America--one of the best-known and longest running Irish American groups--has performed all over the U.S. since the 1970's and has featured scores of Irish artists in America including Michael Flatley, John Doyle, Karan Casey and Séamus Eagan. For their only NYC performance this year, The Green Fields of America will showcase their extraordinary repository of Irish vocal, instrumental and dance traditions, while bringing together the exhilarating mixture of the rugged and beautiful old-time Appalachian music and song from Eddie Bond's The New Ballard's Branch Bogtrotters on fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass, autoharp and mandolin. The show also features the finely crafted Blue Ridge Mountain tunes of Virginian multi-instrumentalist Cleek Schrey, the soulful Irish folk tunes of four-time All-Ireland Champion Michelle Mulcahy on Irish harp, concertina, piano, fiddle and accordion, and the beautiful rhythmic movements of dancers Wayne Daniels and Kieran Jordan.

From the jigs and reels of Ireland and America to the Appalachian harmonies of the Blue Ridge Mountain, this one-night-only roof-raising musical spectacular is the perfect setting to celebrate St. Patrick’s week with your friends and family.

This event is also generously sponsored by Northern Ireland Bureau.
