Join the Hounds of Cuchulain for a night of energetic Irish and Celtic music, dancing, and raucous revelry!
Celebrate St Patrick’s Day the authentic way: rowdy pub songs and shanties, driving ballads, and ripping reels, interspersed with ancient airs on the Irish harp – all performed by a full band of traditional instruments in the straight-ahead style of folk greats such as the Dubliners and Pogues, and tied together with engaging storytelling to bring the history of the music to life.
The night will feature star performers from the Victoria School of Irish Dance lending their percussive talent to the music – and they might even teach you to dance a Cèili!
Come prepared to dance, sing, drink and be merry all night long – and don’t forget your bit of green!
Wolf Edwards – guitar and lead vocals
Madeleine Townley – tin whistle, Irish harp, and backing vocals
Briana Kennedy – fiddle
