IRISH LANGUAGE MASS AT SAINT PATRICK’S OLD CATHEDRAL

Saturday, March 13th, 2010, at 12 p.m., at Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral on Mott and Prince streets in Manhattan.

This Mass is co-sponsored by The New York Irish History Roundtable, NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House, and Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral, on the corner of Mott and Prince streets in Manhattan.

As in previous years, we will have readings and liturgy in the Irish language. The mass will be celebrated by Fr. Aidan O’Driscoll of County Cork. There will be Irish liturgical music by Cantor Paddy Connolly and accompaniment by Jared Lamenzo on the Cathedral’s historic 1868 Erben organ.

After the Mass, the Washington Square Harp & Shamrock Orchestra will entertain the crowd with live ceili music, Ridgewood (New Jersey) Irish Dance, directed by Susan-Daly Stanek, will also perform, and refreshments will be provided.

Come and join us to celebrate the Feast of Saint Patrick! There is no charge to attend.

If It Wasn�t for the Irish and the Jews with Mick Moloney, Peter Quinn & Robert Sullivan

If It Wasn’t for the Irish and the Jews with Mick Moloney, Peter Quinn & Robert Sullivan

Tuesday, March 2,  at 6:30 pm

Mick Moloney is a man of many talents  —  teacher, musician, and recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage fellowship  —  but perhaps his greatest gift to ethnomusicology has been his research into 19th and early 20th-century popular music.

If It Wasn’t for the Irish and the Jews sheds light on the unlikely collaboration between Irish and Jewish composers around the turn of the last century. Their efforts resulted in some of pre-Tin Pan Alley’s most popular ditties, as delightful today as they were when first written.

Join us as Moloney’s band performs some of these tunes and longtime friends Quinn and Sullivan (who sometimes sound like a Vaudeville act themselves) dive into this colorful history.

Albums will be available for purchase at the event, or you may buy a copy in advance for pick up on Tuesday. Visit the online shop or call 212-982-8420.
  • This event will be held at the Angel Orensanz Foundation Center, 172 Norfolk Street between E. Houston and Stanton. Tickets are available at the door only. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

This event will be held at Angel Orensanz, 172 Norfolk St.
