Party the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day at the Plymouth Arts Center with “Shamrocks & Shenanigans 12, An Irish Music Show” directed by Plymouth’s own Irish Lass, Ms. Mary Calvey. Now in its 12th year, this ever-popular show has become an annual Irish musical tradition at the Plymouth Arts Center. The show focuses on a wide selection of Irish melodies, including ballads and pub songs, Irish Dancing, and a wee bit o’ laughter thrown in.

This year’s talented musicians include: Mary Calvey (Plymouth), director, on vocals and bodhran; Steve Vogt (Grafton) on Irish tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica and vocals; Laura (Kaat) Van Maaren (Oostburg) on tin whistle, fiddle and vocals; Roger Cass (Cedarburg) on guitar; Bill Rathman (Elkhart Lake) on string bass; Ken Wilhite (Gibbsville) on fiddle, and JoAnne Friedman (Cascade) on guitar and vocals.

You don’t have to be Irish to appreciate this show! Bring your friends and family members and listen to such beloved Irish songs as “Wild Rover” and “Danny Boy.” Clap your hands and stomp your feet to such energetic tunes as “Red-Haired Boy” and “John Ryan.” Sway to such charming melodies as “Fiddlers Green” and “Fields of Athrenry.” Watch the amazing footwork of beautiful Irish Dancers. Laugh at good clean Irish jokes. Enjoy some Irish beer at the cash bar. Receive a special sweet treat! There is sure to be something that everyone will love in this show.
