The Young Irelanders at Hawks and Reed, March 20

The Young Irelanders

If you’re interested in top-notch Irish music, performed by some of the best young musicians that the tradition has to offer, I just found out about a concert that I think would be well worth attending.  On March 20th, at Hawks and Reed Performing Arts Center in Greenfield, MA, The Young Irelanders will perform to the delight of all who attend. I caught this show last year, and it was brilliant.
From the Hawks and Reed event page:

To experience Ireland’s traditions in music, song, and dance presented by some of the most talented young performers in the world, this sensational act is an absolute must-see. The future of Ireland’s culture is undoubtedly in safe hands with The Young Irelanders.

Members of the Irish Cultural Academy have performed across six continents and for many heads of state, Presidents of Ireland, U.S. Presidents, and royalty including Prince Albert of Monaco. Members have also performed in many noted international venues such as Beijing Opera House, Sydney Opera House, Kremlin State Palace in Moscow, the U.S. Capitol Building, The Kennedy Center, and Lincoln Center.

Aimee Fitzpatrick – Vocals
