Irish music and more at Lauralton's annual Irish Night

Lauralton Hall’s annual Irish Night will take place Saturday, Feb. 27.

The event offers an evening of congeniality and Irish entertainment that celebrates the school’s long affinity for Irish culture and hospitality.

Founded by the Sisters of Mercy over 100 years ago, Lauralton Hall is committed to “empowering women for life,” and fostering a community atmosphere enriched by the Mercy tradition. Irish Night pays homage to Lauralton Hall’s Irish roots while also raising money to support Lauralton Hall Financial Aid and Scholarships.”

Doors will open at 6:45 p.m. and guests will be greeted by the music of TRAD, a foot-stomping trio with Lauralton Hall faculty member and Celtic music master, Damien Connolly and his wife Sally. The evening will officially commence with the award-winning Fairfield Gaelic Pipe Band.  Once Removed, a musical group of family members that drives their audience to sing along, will add their musical talents to the mix, and step dancers of Lauralton Hall will provide a taste of the old Irish céilis with their jigs and reels.

The evening will culminate with the musical group Keltic Kick Band, New England’s Premier Irish Band. Their unique blend of energized traditional Irish music has kept them at the forefront of the concert and club scene in the Northeast for over three decades.

Back again will be the optional Best Table contest, which offers guests the opportunity to become as creative and competitive as they like, decorating their tables in the spirit of the season. Trophies will be awarded—including a perpetual trophy for first place winners with their names engraved on it.

A “Luck of the Irish” raffle will include many prizes. Coffee, tea and dessert will be provided. Bring your own beverages, ice and snacks.
