The pipes are calling for one and all to come out to the North Texas Irish Festival on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 3, 4 & 5th at Fair Park in Dallas. Bring the friends and the whole family to this North Texas favorite sponsored by the Southwest Celtic Music Association and NBC 5.
To acknowledge the Lone Star State’s role in preserving, celebrating and furthering Irish culture in the U.S., this year’s theme is Texas Grown – Irish Roots. Gracing the festival will be performers from around the world, including a band from the Isle of Man, who does “Manx” music, Barrule, and first North Texas Irish Festival appearance from Brian McNeill.
The North Texas Irish Festival brings together a wide variety of exhibitors, workshops and demonstrations. Such as, delight performances from modern Irish dancers, culinary tricks for modern Irish cuisine, traditional Irish from “Shanachie” (storytellers), and much more.
From highlighting true legends of Irish music to continuing the legacy through newer, young musicians emerging from the North Texas hotbed of Irish music, North Texas Irish Festival proves to be another rich, cultural experience that will have toes tapping and minds blown.
