Irish Emigration Songs: A Community Celebration


A wonderful evening of Irish Songs is planned by Peadar MacMahon and friends on Easter Sunday April 1 in The Mountain Room at Boundary Bay Brewery. A proud native of Limerick,Ireland, and long time resident of Bellingham, this is the third year that Peadar has assembled a group of Bellingham’s finest singers and musicians to perform a concert of Irish Song. This year's theme, Irish Emigration, has a particular personal significance to Peadar as he plans to return to live in Ireland, having emigrated to Bellingham in 1990.. The event will help to raise funds for Peadar and his friends to make some final studio recordings before he departs. Performers: Peadar MacMahon, Richard and Helen Scholtz, Jan Peters,Janet Peterson, Laura Smith,Marie Eaton,David Donohue,Derek Duffy. Laurel Bliss, Harper Stone.
