Celebrating Irish America



Wed, Mar 17, 2021




This St. Patrick's Day, IAC is proud to join Ireland’s Ambassador to the United States, Dan Mulhall, the Embassy and diplomatic missions, community organizations, and Culture Ireland and Tourism Ireland for a virtual celebration of music, dance, poetry, and stories from Irish America. 

We’re delighted to share in this special presentation a number of our Grásta series commissions and other highlights from the past year, along with the premiere of a new single by Aoife O’Donovan; a Celtic Appalachian segment featuring Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton, Nora Brown and Megan Downes; and a reprise of our Virtual Gala finale featuring the Arturo O’Farrill Quartet with Aedín Moloney. These artists' works join a lineup of performances by Rosanne Cash, Eimear Noone, We Banjo 3, Kíla, Morgan Bullock, Gregory Harrington, Danielle Enblom, and Patrick Dexter.
