LINCROFT – Echoes of Erin, the 41st Annual Concert Tour, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, by Claddagh na nGael (Irish Shore) at Christian Brothers Academy, 850 Newman Springs Road.
This year’s tour of North America is sponsored by Tourism Ireland and features 13 artists, many of who are All-Ireland champions. “This is a rare treat to bring this type of talent in a variety show format from Ireland over here,” said Jim Kelly, public relations officer of Claddagh na nGael. “We had the tour with a different cast two years ago and we sold out the Middletown Arts Center.”
Echoes of Erin 2013 presents a variety of Irish traditional music, song and dance while providing an insight into authentic Irish cultural traditions. A group of musicians, singers and dancers from among the very top All-Ireland champions have been chosen for the autumn tour and further details will be available at the Irish Shore website.
Tickets may be purchased in advance for $20 at Claddagh na nGael at www.irishshore.org. For more information call Dermot Francis Farley, chairperson, Claddagh na nGael at 732-915-2191.
