Get your Irish started early with Stevie Matier, Molly Otis, Andy Noyes and Nori Schwenzfeier, all Blue Canvas Orchestra regulars, and Big Top favorites. Quoting Stevie: “Beidh ceol, scealta agus craic againn anocht” which means “We'll have music, stories, and fun tonight!” Expect an intimate show featuring all that is Irish: both ancient and modern; contemporary and traditional; music, stories and fun. Plus, partake in an Irish menu and special Irish cocktails mixed for you at the bar.
