"Celtic Appalachia tops St. Patrick's Day celebrations-Mick Moloney and Irish Arts Center triumph." - Irish Central
Our annual rousing tribute to the thriving Irish and Appalachian traditions and shared musical lineage returns St. Patrick's week. With constantly evolving material and an unmatched energy, Mick Moloney the Green Fields of America, including 2016 NEA National Heritage Fellow Billy McComiskey, and a star-studded ensemble of musicians, singers, and dancers will leave audiences feeling uplifted.
The beloved Irish American group will be joined by old-time Virginia musicians Erynn Marshall and Carl Jones showcasing their southern song-duets and soaring fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and banjo tunes; Anna & Elizabeth spanning worlds between Brooklyn and rural Virginia, bringing together mountain ballads and explorations into the avant garde; New York City's own Megan Downes with dancers from City Stompers; and Irish traditional tunes on the fiddle from All Ireland Champions Haley Richardson and Jake James.
