While pubs will be bursting with noisy St. Patrick’s Day revelers, the Oconomowoc Arts Center will be pulsing with the joyful sounds of Irish music.
Girsa, a Gaelic word that means “young girls,” will entertain the St. Patty’s Day crowd Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
The eight young women from Pearl River, New York, have been performing together for six years and have produced several CDs. Their performances have been called “refreshing” and “simply exquisite.”
They all play instruments including fiddle, bodhran, mandolin, whistle, piano, accordion and guitar.
The girls have known each other for years and participated in Irish music and dance when they were growing up in Pearl River. Most learned traditional Irish music from their parents, many of whom were taught by some of Ireland’s music greats.
Prior to Saturday’s performance will be the opening reception for the Oconomowoc High School International Baccalaureate student art show at 6:30 p.m. The Oconomowoc Ukulele Club will perform at 6:45 p.m.
Tickets for the Girsa show are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $8 for students. For tickets or information call (262) 560-3172 or visit www.theoac.net.
