An evening with The Green Fields of America is an unforgettable, uplifting experience. They perform a sweeping set of reels, jigs, barndances, slow airs, hornpipes and other dance tunes. Traditional and contemporary songs in Gaelic and English include love songs, humorous songs, patriotic songs, songs of emigration and settlement, Irish-American songs from variety-vaudeville. All this is linked by the urbane, informative witty commentary for which the group is also renowned.
The Green Fields of America was the first time - either side of the Atlantic - that Irish vocal, instrumental and dance traditions were brought together on concert stages. Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts a record five times, the Green Fields showcase has performed all over the United States since the late 1970s. This IMBOLC appearance by Mick Moloney and the Green Fields of America is extra-special. It will be the 40th anniversary of the ensemble forming and touring.
