An Irish Hooley!

  • Harris Center/Three Stages at Folsom Lake College Folsom, CA 95630

It just wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day without honoring the great tradition and the mighty joy of being Irish. With rip-roaring music, song, and dance, Kerry Records presents An Irish Hooley with Slugger O'Toole in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. The seven musicians of Slugger O’Toole return to Folsom for a raucous, rave-up of an Irish night. Joined by members of the superb Kerry Dance Troupe, Slugger O’Toole shares their passion for the music of Ireland and the Celtic Nations by concocting a heady brew of foot-stomping pub songs, heart-rending ballads and deft instrumentals. With traditional instrumentation including fiddle, button accordion, mandolin, banjo, bodhran, pennywhistle, flute and guitars, the band thrills audiences with its brilliant close-harmony acapella renditions of the Irish classics that are true to the Celtic core. "Seeing these guys live makes me feel like I'm at a pub in the west of Ireland" (Conejo News Press).
