Mar 14: An Evening with Irish Blessing


The Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art is known for “going green” in its mission of connecting people with nature and the arts, but on March 14, the Center will “go green” in a different way: by celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with Irish Blessing!  

Irish Blessing, is an acclaimed York, PA-based family quartet that intensely and unapologetically carries on the purest forms of traditional Irish music & dance. With four tours of Michael Flatley’s LORD OF THE DANCE under his belt, and having been sought out by RIVERDANCE, Jonathon mesmerizes his audience with explosive, mind-boggling dance rhythms and powerfully fast-and-furious flute tunes.

Josh, with flying feet, is also a rising fiddle phenomenon whose phrases draw the audience into the infectious toe tapping, hand clapping world of jigs and reels. Both boys have the rare and dual distinction of competing in the World Championships of both Irish music & dance.

Hailing from New Zealand with Irish roots, Cushla provides strong rhythmic accompaniment on the piano and beautiful melodic phrases on the whistle and flute. Jim rounds out the band with the percussive palpitations of the bodhran, the traditional Irish drum. Together, Irish Blessing has electrified audiences from New Zealand to New York.
