12th Annual Irish-American Crossroads Festival February 28–March 29, 2015

World Class Artists in the Event of the Season

HomePageBox2Experience the West Coast Premiere of “A Celtic Appalachian Celebration,” featuring an ensemble of award-winning artists who will explore the deep musical lineage connecting Ireland and Appalachia. Join us to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on the main stage of the Marin Civic Center for this one-night-only engagement: March 21st, 2015.

This celebrated ensemble – each artist a star in his/her own right — will join together for the first time on two iconic Bay Area stages to illuminate the pathways through which cultures and music have blended over centuries in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the North Carolina hills. This fertile crossover has produced some of America’s oldest musical forms, such as Bluegrass and Old-Time music, which endure to delight audiences until today.

Watch a video of Mick Moloney, Athena Tergis, Billy McComiskey & Michelle Mulcahy performing together.
