There’s a huge festival in Valley Forge this weekend, Black 47’s Larry Kirwan will be singing and talking about 1916, and eight couples will be “Dancing Like a Star” to benefit the Delco Gaels. And there’s a whole lot of music in between.
Eight brave couples, all amateurs, are rehearsing for this year’s Delco Gael’s Dancing Like a Star fundraiser on February 19.
The annual Mid-Winter Scottish Irish Festival in Valley Forge starts on Friday with a huge lineup of bands for every musical taste. Jamison headlines a fundraiser this week for Archbishop Ryan High School, and three top notch singers will be raising money on Sunday for the “Come West Along the Road” Irish radio show. And Celtic Thunder’s Emmet Cahill will be back at The Irish Center on Monday.
Solas is bringing its 20th anniversary show to World Cafe Live this week. And the Celtic Supporters are coming–it’s their annual weekend to celebrate the Glasgow Celtics. The annual Celtic Spring concert takes place at Sacred Heart Church in Camden. And the Derry Society will be remembering those who lost their lives on “Bloody Sunday” 44 years ago at a Mass at the Irish Center.
Snow may white out your weekend calendar, but there are some fun events coming up.
