‘An Irish Hooley!’ is good foot-stomping fun

It was a raucous good time when “An Irish Hooley!” came to Harris Center for the Arts, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, last season for two sold-out performances. This year, it’s the perfect lead-up to St. Patrick’s Day.

From the producer of “An Irish Christmas” comes this “Irish Hooley!” (boisterous party) — pipes, flutes, harp, fiddle, bodhrans, dancing, singing and storytelling — featuring the six-piece band Slugger O’Toole and members of the superb Kerry Records Dance team.

The musicians of Slugger O’Toole share their passion for the music of Ireland and the
Celtic nations by concocting a heady brew of foot-stomping pub songs, heart-rending
ballads and deft instrumentals.

The band Slugger O’Toole is comprised of Matt Foyer (mandolin, pennywhistle, flute), Dan Harper (guitar), Johnny “The Box” McKenna (button accordion, bodhran), Tim “Clough” McNamara (bass), Peter Romano (guitar), and newest member John Sommers (fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar).

Special guests are Kimberly Gerard, Keara Osborne and Stephanie Hunter. Also included is The Kerry Dance Troupe, comprised of dancers from “Riverdance,” “Lord of the Dance,” “Magic of the Dance” and local champion dancers.

These ambassadors of Irish dance work with Kerry Records on various aspects of Irish folk-dance traditions, incorporating old-Irish dance styles into modern-Irish dance styles. Through this process, the best of ethnic and modern Ireland is represented, exposing audiences to the beauty, value, passion and uniqueness of the traditional Irish dance.

“An Irish Hooley!” with Slugger O’Toole will be performed on Saturday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $19 to $29, premium $39 and students with ID $12 and are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Saturday and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket.
