Music of Ireland at Hopkins

Irish Shenanigans will perform "Traditions of Ireland: Songs, Tunes, and More" at noon on Wednesday, March 8, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

The trio will share the Irish experience through song, poetry, an immigration tale, and a dancing fiddler. With contagious energy and music, their program appeals to audiences of all ages. Audience members will learn a Gaelic greeting, a song about a real woman pirate, and how to make an Irish drum.

The Washington Post has called Irish Shenanigans "a sparkling blend of strings, flutes, and heartfelt vocals."

Featured members of the trio include Maggie’s Music recording artist Karen Ashbrook (Irish flute, pennywhistles, bodhran drum), Connie McKenna (guitar, vocals) from the award-winning group, Ceoltoiri, and Steve Hickman on fiddle and body percussion.

This performance is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the Johns Hopkins y Office of Special Events. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
