Our July 22nd concert will be an Irish Hooley, featuring Nancy Conescu, along with the Murray School of Irish Dancing. Nancy is widely recognized, particularly throughout Ireland, for her vocal and guitar work, where she has appeared on concert stages, radio, and television. The Murray Irish Dance Troupe, well known for its high-energy performances and vividly attractive costumes, never fails to engage its audience, whether young or old. Every performance is marked by toe tapping, foot stomping and hand-clapping in the spirit of Irish culture, music, and tradition. For more information, please visit murrayirishdance.com.
