Irish Blessing to perform at Penn State DuBois
Monday, March 4, 2013
DUBOIS - In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, the traditional Irish folk music and dance ensemble Irish Blessing will perform at Penn State DuBois March 14 at 7 p.m. in Hiller Auditorium.
The acclaimed family quartet from York carries on the purest forms of traditional Irish music and dance. The group includes James and Cushla Srour and their sons, Jonathan and Josh. With a love of family and Irish culture, Irish Blessing embraces the living tradition, keeping classic Irish folk music and dance alive at home and on stage.
Jonathon has completed four tours with Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance, and has been sought out by Riverdance. He also mesmerizes audiences with his skill on the flute.
Josh, with flying feet, is also a rising fiddle phenomenon whose phrases draw the audience into the toe tapping, hand clapping world of jigs and reels. Both boys have competed in the world championships of Irish music and dance.
Hailing from New Zealand with Irish roots, Cushla provides rhythmic accompaniment on the piano and melodic phrases on the whistle and flute. Jim rounds out the band with the percussive palpitations of the bodhran, the traditional Irish drum. Together, Irish Blessing has electrified audiences from New Zealand to New York.
As part of the campus' Performing Arts Series, this performance is free and open to the public.
