TREAT CHRISTMAS RIGHT

This December, do right by Christmas with a blasht of jigs and reels straight from the fairy forge of Granuaile: it's Christmas from Ireland in Maryland!  Come out, come out for a yuletide taste of Irish and American traditional music played by some of Maryland's finest traditional musicians, including Peter Brice (button accordion, ballad singing), Patrick McAvinue (fiddle), Matt Mulqueen (piano, button accordion), and Donna Long (piano, fiddle), and featuring sensational leg shaking by esteemed Irish dancers Shannon Dunne (sean-nós dance, concertina) and Catherine Marafino (step dance). But wait, there's more!  Joining them for a limited time will be their adorable students, as diligent as they are talented, dancing, singing, and playing lively music.  After the concert, we'll be clearing the hall for figures and social dances called by Shannon and Catherine.  Join us for the craic, camaraderie, and to wet your whistle at our Irish-Arts Bar, serving seasonal drinks begrudgingly assembled by rebel North Pole elves.

Ho-ho-hold on!  There's more...

We're very excited to announce a partnership with the Irish Restaurant Company and Brian Boru Irish Restaurant to bring you an Annapolis holiday treat: THE VERY BEST EGGNOG IN THE WORLD.  We'll be raffling six bottles of Imported Galway Bay Authentic Irish Eggnog on December 10th and December 17th so that you can take home some of the Christmas magic!  

We'll also head over to Brian Boru after the shows for happy hour prices and a $20 special on bottles of eggnog exclusively for attendees of Christmas from Ireland in Maryland.  What a deal!
