PAC:FREE Celebration of Irish Song and Dance!

June 10, 2017
1:30 to 3:30
Pelham Art Center
FREE

Join us for an afternoon trip to authentic Ireland, abundant with traditional music and dance. Bronx Musician, Patty Furlong, an original member of "Cherish the Ladies," the Grammy-nominated Irish-American female super-group, will perform traditional Irish music on the button accordion, accompanied by her daughter Catriona Furlong on the piano. Once you’re tapping your toes, Catriona will lead an interactive demonstration on basic Irish step dance.  Audience members will have a chance to dance along to the music!
