Celebrate St. Patrick's Day at Powisset Farm!
Join us for an afternoon of Irish music and dance. Celtic fiddler Claire Pettit is a gifted instrumentalist, composer, singer, and dancer. Accomplished on both the violin and viola, she has studied traditional fiddling with several of Cape Breton Island’s legendary masters. Enjoy traditional celtic airs, marches, jigs and reels guaranteed to keep your feet tapping.
Following Claire’s performance, we will be joined by children from the Heavey-Quinn Academy of Irish Dance for a performance of popular Irish dances. You'll be treated to traditional set dances, such as the ‘St. Patrick's Day Set’ or ‘Jockey to the Fair,’ danced in the hard or treble jig shoes by older students. Younger students will dance in their soft shoes or ghillies, as they delight us with beginner reels and light jigs.
Shamrock cookies and mulled cider will be available for sale. Slainte!
