Singer Frances Black is making a brief stop in Philly on August 1 for a house concert with her children, Aoife and Eoghan Scott. Tickets are still available. And there’s more going on!
Timlin & Kane will be in Gettysburg this weekend (road trip!), while Blackthorn is performing in Wildwood (another road trip!). Coming up: a big party thrown by the 2nd Street Plough Boys to celebrate Celtic season.
There’s a wine glass painting fundraiser for the Irish Center on Saturday, and a short film about two brothers hanged for a murder they didn’t commit in post-famine Tipperary at the Center on Tuesday. Look for Jamison, the John Byrne Band, The Derry Brigade and Birmingham Six on stages throughout the region.
The new McKenna’s Kitchen and Market—the restaurant that is taking over the spot once occupied by McKenna’s Irish Shop on Eagle Road in Havertown—is opening its doors. And more!
Fundraising efforts continue this year, starting with a June 27 event at McGillicuddy’s in Upper Darby, but there has been huge progress in the effort to save the Irish Center. Here’s what’s happening.
There are four fundraisers this weekend–supporting the Irish Center, a local organization that helps those in need, the Irish victims of the Berkeley balcony collapse, and a group of young local musicians who are heading to the All-Irelands music competition in Sligo. Sunday’s also the 19th annual Celtic Day on the waterfront in Bristol Borough.
