Overview

Longtime collaborators and pillars of the Irish Arts Center artistic family, Mick Moloney and Athena Tergis return to our intimate theater for an exclusive weekend of performances as a duo, with special guests, culminating in a closing night performance to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Green Fields of America. 

For over fifteen years, Moloney and Tergis have stood together at the forefront of traditional Irish music. Moloney has been awarded the National Heritage Award, the Presidential Distinguished Service Award, and the TG4 Outstanding Contribution Award, and combines the careers of professional musician, folklorist, musicologist, teacher, and arts presenter. Acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic, Tergis is a frequent soloist with the Dublin Philharmonic Orchestra and has written and performed with Riverdance composer Bill Whelan. 

As a duo, these masters embody a special chemistry—a collaboration transcending tradition and uplifting audiences in Ireland, Scotland, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cuba, and throughout the USA.

“It is creative people like Mick who have contributed to the wonderful reputation that Ireland enjoys for the quality of its art and culture, allowing the rest of us to walk with pride in this reflected glory.” —President Michael D. Higgins 

“Fluid phrasing and an innate rhythmic sensibility define the music of San Franciscan fiddler Athena Tergis.”The Irish Times
