• Mar 2, 2017 at 3:00 PM

SANDUSKY — Join Firelands Symphony Orchestra for a fanciful Irish folk music concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 18 at Sandusky State Theatre.

A traditional Irish music group with a truly worldwide reach, Téada will mark St. Patrick’s Day with the show that is pleasing concert goers around the globe. A vocalist and step dancers will accompany the musicians.

A traditional band with a truly worldwide reach, Téada has appeared as a frequent headliner at major music festivals throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Russia, The Middle East and Australia. Highlights include a 30,000-capacity stadium concert in Brittany, along with performances at Penang World Music Festival in Malaysia, Edmonton Folk Festival in Canada, Harare International Festival of the Arts in Zimbabwe, and an extensive seven-week tour of Japan/Taiwan in 2014 playing to audiences of 40,000 people.

Continuing to grow in vision, the band has recently received a Yeats 2015 WDC Funding Award for a show production celebrating the Sligo-inspired poetry of W.B. Yeats. Téada’s latest addition to the line-up is legendary West Kerry singer and accordionist Séamus Begley, winner of 2013 TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year.

This concert is made possible by the generous sponsorship of our principal benefactors, The Randolph J. & Estelle M. Dorn Foundation, The Frost-Parker Foundation, and funding from The Ohio Arts Council, Patricia and Giovanni Bignoli, Bignoli Enterprises, Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A., Erie Country Community Foundation, and Buckeye Broadband.
