Our evening of Irish-inspired poetry and music was complemented by the Irish weather on Saturday, complete with mist, rain, and wind. Inside the Great Room at the Long Island Violin Shop, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming.

Cady Finlayson and Vita Tanga then started their first set, and played some wonderful tunes, including their Grand Canyon Set, including “Dunmore Lassies” and “Hector the Hero”. Following this performance was Claire Nicolas White, first reading W.B. Yeats, and then her own poetry. After the intermission, Claire Nicolas White completed her reading. Cady and Vita then took the stage once again for another rousing set of tunes for guitar and 5-string fiddle. Thanks again to St. Hugh of Lincoln Church for providing seating for this event.
