Seanachie Evenings: Songs and Stories of the Irish in the Adirondacks

October 21, 2016 - October 21, 2016

Join two of the region's most renowned folk-performers with a long affection for Adirondack and Celtic culture in an evening of songs, stories, and merriment featuring Dan Berggren and Jeannine Laverty on October 21 @ 7PM at the Irish American Heritage Museum in Downtown Albany.

Dan Berggren's roots are firmly in the Adirondacks where he was raised but his music has branched out across many borders. The award-winning musician and educator grew up on the land farmed by his mother's family for generations and has worked in the woods with forest ranger and survey crews. Hearing stories and songs from local friends and neighbors, Dan has developed a style that captures the spirit of the mountains.

Jeannine Laverty, who comes from longtime Iowa-Irish farm stock, has resided for 35 years in Saratoga Springs in the Adirondack foothills. As a flatlander, she savors the mountain people's stories too, and found her soul reluctant to cross back over the Atlantic when she visited Ireland

Cost- $5 Museum members, $10 non-members, $25 family-four pack
