The Irish Heritage Center of Greater Cincinnati / The Irish American Theater Company 2014

On this episode of SHOWCASE WITH BARBARA KELLAR, Maureen A. Kennedy, one of the Irish Heritage Center of Greater Cincinnati's founding members, talks about their upcoming programs and exhibits that are open to the public.

 

During this episode, a few of the talented artists who have appeared at the Irish Center offer us a taste of the Music, Dance, and Theater that are featured during their St. Patrick’s Day weekend celebration and on a regular basis throughout the year.

 

Lauren Holt and Don Rolfes, on Irish fiddle and uilleann (Irish) pipes respectively, play Lark in the Morning and Kesh Jig.

 

The McGing Irish Dancers perform traditional jigs and reels. The McGing School has been sharing its talents around the Cincinnati area for over 37 years.  Their performance is a sample from their upcoming shows.

 

The Irish American Theater Company will also be presenting a scene from their Spring play, the World Premiere of an original work by local author and playwright William H. A. Williams, PhD “Tho it Were Ten Thousand Mile." Seamus is portrayed by Mick McEvilley; Fiona is played by Carrington Rowe. Directed by Maureen A. Kennedy, this musical play tells the tale of a May/December romance, Irish style.
