With Kevin Buckley, Dan Lowery, and author Patrick Murphy
| 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. | Festival Stage
Irish music, literature, and history are inseparable, and in the afternoon we bring you the perfect mix. Irish fiddler Kevin Buckley and flutist/guitarist Dan Lowery will play popular folk tunes. In between songs, Patrick Murphy—author of The Irish in St. Louis — will share highlights of local Irish history, touching on fascinating figures like Timothy Dempsey and Charles Dismas Clark (the “Hoodlum Priest”) and noting infamous ones like the Bottoms Gang and Egan’s Rats. Join us in the great tradition of Irish music-making and storytelling!
