The weekend before St. Patrick’s Day, roll up your sleeves for an evening of hootin’, hollerin’, pickin’, strummin’, and foot-stompin’ revelry with over 15 world musicians, singers, and dancers genre-jumping through the jigs, reels, and harmonies of Ireland, America, and West Africa, led by legendary musician, folklorist and National Heritage Award-winner Mick Moloney.

Featuring some of the most formidable and respected old-time musicians in West Virginia, the Bing Brothers Band will showcase their hard-driving brand of string music. With over 30 years’ experience, their sound has been recognized and rewarded with many honors over the years, and represents Appalachia’s thriving musical heritage.

Collaborating with the beloved Green Fields of America—one of the best-known and longest running Irish American groups—the Bing Brothers Band will share the stage with San Francisco based singer/songwriter/guitarist Kyle Alden, best known for his award-winning folk music settings of W.B. Yeats' poetry, and Cheick Hamala Diabate, a griot (storyteller) and master of the West African precursor to the banjo. Fans can expect solo performances, fiddlin’ and bowin’, and rousing stompers, and haunting ballads.

Infusing the best Irish traditional music influences on old time American, country and bluegrass music, the evening is the perfect setting to celebrate a musical tradition that knows no boundaries.
