Who/What: St. Mary’s quintessential St. Patrick’s Day tradition continues, with the exuberant sound of Molly’s Revenge, the high flying Rosemary Turco Irish Dancers, and our festive bistro offerings. Yes, it’s the party for Paddy 2019!! Molly’s Revenge is a dynamic, acoustic Celtic band known for its unique and infectious enthusiasm. The classic combination of bagpipes, whistle, and fiddle, with a backdrop of guitar, mandola, and bodhran guarantees an enjoyable experience for all fans of Celtic music. Molly’s Revenge has performed at many of the top folk festivals and performing arts events in the USA, and prestigious events in Scotland, Australia and China. Their arrangements of traditional Celtic jigs and reels bring these dance tunes up to date with a driving, hard-edged accent that always leaves audiences shouting for more. You know them as one of the best groups in the biz, but we affectionately and proudly refer to them as our “house band.” Gotta love the lads, and we are so glad they are coming back with the dancers to get this party started again!!
