In celebration of the Broadway Musical “Once” showing at The Paramount Theatre (May 27- June 8, 2014), Northwest Folklife will be celebrating with the sounds of Irish Music…and beer.
The musical “Once” tells the tale of a Dublin street musician that finds inspiration with a beautiful young woman who is also a fellow musician. Locally based Irish musicians, Carrigaline Celtic Band and other guests will be playing traditional music, talking about their unique instruments, and giving insight to the importance of pub culture in Ireland on
Monday, May 26 at 5PM in the Fisher Green Beer/Wine Garden.
This event is part of an Irish Pub Crawl produced with our partners Seattle Theatre Group that will continue off Festival grounds following this introduction at the Festival.
Catch Carrigaline Celtic Band and other British Isle performers on Folklife’s newest stage, the Trad Stage! The Trad Stage (sponsored by Fretboard Journal) will feature some of the best traditional musicians of the Northwest, and will pull from the programming from past year’s much-loved Northwest Court Stage. See you at the Festival!
