A mix of old and new this week. There will be a new Philly Rose of Tralee this weekend; a new play opens that combines a little Irish sports rivalry and a lot of comedy, a staging of Oscar Wilde’s “Salome” at Villanova, an Easter Rising ceremony, and a visit by two award-winning Irish traditional singers of different generations.
Members of Ensemble Galilei, which mix old instruments and Celtic music, will be in Philadelphia this week. Lots of Scottish acts, including the Battlefield Band and Jim Malcom, will be nearby. And his friends in the arts will be roasting and toasting Dublin-born Fergus Carey of Fergie’s Pub (and other establishments) who is an avid supporter of the arts.
If you haven’t had enough, there’s another parade, some Irish comedy, and, of course, music.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Even people who aren’t Irish know how to be Irish in Philly this week. Read our longest list of events ever!
Oh, come on, really? Hope you love a parade. And music. And dancing. And beer. Because there’s a lot of that going around. It’s a great week–or two–for the Irish.
