Bucks County Playhouse will salute the music of Ireland with a special Irish Music Festival, March 17-18, 2017. Featuring three unique acts that specialize in Celtic Music, the Festival also includes a “pop up” inflatable Irish Pub in the Playhouse’s Courtyard, an Irish Whiskey tasting event and plenty of Irish charm all weekend.
Festivities kick off on Friday, March 17 at 8 p.m. with a concert by The River Drivers. Anchored by Kevin McCloskey (vocals, guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass) and Mindy Murray (vocals, guitar, banjo) with accompaniment by Marian Moran (tin whistle, low whistle, concertina) and Meagan Ratini (fiddle, Irish flute, tin whistle), The River Drivers have cultivated a passion-infused style drawing from Celtic, Americana and Mountain influences.

On Saturday, March 18 at 2 p.m., The John Byrne Band will present a concert, led by former Patrick’s Head front man and Dublin native John Byrne. With influences ranging from The Chieftains to Planxty to Bob Dylan, John’s songwriting honors and expands upon the musical and lyrical traditions of his native and adopted homes.

Between the performances on Saturday, the inflatable pub will host an Irish Whiskey Tasting from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The tasting includes five courses of Irish whiskeys with a complimentary light fare buffet. The tasting requires a separate ticket. Irish whiskey tasting tickets (tasting only) and tasting tickets for concert single ticket holders cost $35. Whiskey tasting tickets for pass holders are $30.
The Festival concludes on March 18 at 8 pm with a concert by The Galways Girls featuring Celtic Pride. Returning to the Playhouse, The Galway Girls are Meredith Beck, Kendra Jo Brook and Janice Landry with special guest singer Michael O’Brien. The performance also features Irish-American band Celtic Pride, led by Bill and Jim Monaghan and Brian DiBiagio.
The Irish Music Festival is sponsored by New Hope businesses – The Dubliner on the Delaware and Celt-Iberia Traders – as well as Two Gingers Irish Whiskey and Southern Wine and Spirits of Pennsylvania.
Tickets to the Irish Music Festival are available as either single tickets for each show or as a weekend pass. Single ticket (per event) prices are: Cabaret Tables: $30 and Orchestra Seats: $20. Passholder tickets are: Cabaret Tables: $75 and Orchestra: $45.

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
We decided to cancel Shad’Toberfest. This decision was not made lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now.
The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding.
There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
