7:00pm Music with The Rowdy Maggie Band

Multi-instrumentalist Jacqui Sandor exhibits a soulful voice quality that blends well with whatever instrument or other voices that she sings with.  Her soulful timbre and vibrato, distantly reminiscent of her New Orleans, fit straight in with her material whether it be a fine ol' folk song or seamlessly harmonizing with her Irish Celtic bandmates.

7:00pm Céilí

Traditionally, a céilí is a social gathering featuring Irish music and dance.  Dancing may be performed with as few as two people, as many as sixteen and may also be danced with an unlimited number of couples in a long line or around in a circle.  Céilís at The Irish House is a big, fun party with music, dancing and drinking!  

Families, experts and novices are all encouraged to join in.

All weekend long we will be trading "Cabbage for a Shot."

Turn in your cabbage after the parade and get a free shot!
