St. Patrick's Day Celebration
A special St. Patty’s Day celebration with the legendary performer Robbie O’Connell. A native of Waterford, Ireland, he started performing at the age of thirteen. After touring with the Clancy Brothers, he released his first solo album in 1982. He hasn’t stopped since and we are delighted to have him along with fiddler Rose Clancy.

"Hail to the Chief"
Cure your pre-election blues with this wonderfully fun show featuring election songs from America’s past all wrapped into a delightfully witty play. Before radio, TV, and the Internet, songs were hte most effective way to spread a political message. Hail to the Chief includes a colorful assortment of candidates’ songs – from the era of George Washington up to the time of JFK, songs set to traditional melodies, and original tunes such as those by Irving Berlin. Hail to the Chief is more than a history lesson: it’s a refreshing antidote to today’s negative campaigns.
