Lilt’s Upcoming Performances!
Sunday, July 1
Monopoly House Concerts
$10 suggested donation
We’re playing a house concert as part of Monopoly House Concerts’ “Dessert and Song” series. This will be a small-scale performance, and just as the concert series’ title suggests, it will start with a social gathering for dessert, followed by an intimate performance by Lilt. Reservations are required. More info at http://www.concertsinyourhome.com/event-dmcquade20120629.html
Saturday, July 14
Irish Cultural Heritage Night at Ossian Hall Park
7900 Heritage Drive, Annandale VA
We’ll be performing as “Lilt Deluxe” – our usual duo will be augmented with our friends Mitch Fanning and Jesse Winch. Mitch is a great fiddler, and is accomplishing great things in Irish music education. He is the founder and director of the Bog Band — the wonderful young persons’ ensemble — which has been setting a high standard for excellence for a number of years. Jesse plays the bodhran, guitar, and all manner of miscellaneous instruments. He is a near-legendary figure in Irish music in America, knowing and playing with nearly everybody. He was recently inducted into the CCE Irish Music Hall of Fame for the US Mid-Atlantic Region. “Lilt Deluxe” will be accompanied by some great Irish dancers, and the performance will be followed by a movie. This will be a great event for the family!
