Get ready for St. Patrick’s Day with an evening of traditional Irish music at the Presbyterian Church on Friday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m. sponsored by Sylvester Manor Educational Farm.

The evening feaures a youthful trio, Méara Meara. Though still in their teens, the three musicans have been turning heads in the traditional Irish music community. They are: Haley Richardson, fiddle and vocals; her brother, Dylan Richardson, guitar, bouzouki and banjo; and Keegan Loesel, uilleann pipes, whistles and vocals.

All are award-winning musicians and Haley has performed with many of the well-known names in Irish music today including the Chieftains, Altan, Dervish, Pride of New York, and is a regular member of the John Whelan Band.

Tickets cost $20 and are available at the door or by calling the Manor at 749-0626.
