In addition to a hearty meal of corned beef and cabbage, what better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than a trip to Fairfield University’s Quick Center for a direct infusion of Irish spirit. Lilting voices combine with fancy dancing feet when “Celtic Nights – Journey of Hope” taps its way, direct from Ireland, on Friday, March 9, at 8 p.m.
With rousing music, song, dance and storytelling, drawing its tales from the history and folklore of this magical land, “Celtic Nights” will cast a spell as it weaves the words and deeds of the immigrant experience. With passion, pride and promise, it will provide a rich legacy of ballads like “Galway Bay,” “Danny Boy” and “May We Never Have to Say Goodbye” as well as unforgettable step dancing choreography.
Call the Quick Center, 1073 North Benson Road, Fairfield on the campus of Fairfield University at 203-254-4010, 1-877-ARTS-396 or online at www.quickcenter.com. Tickets are $35-40-45.
Follow this journey of expectation, one filled with laughter, sadness and hope, as the glory of the Emerald Isle comes straight into your heart.
