Garden Band Session: The Irish Wakers
August 18 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Our summer concert schedule is so full, we have to find creative ways to share more exceptional music with you. Come share in an acoustic experience with a talented band in our gardens.
On Friday, August 18th, Vancouver band The Irish Wakers will be passing through on their way to the Princeton Traditional Music Festival and will be setting up under the shade of one of our stately Horse Chestnut trees for a lively set of Irish music.
The Irish Wakers celebrate the songs and dance music of Ireland, with nods to the Canadian Maritimes and to seafarers everywhere. Their line-up includes vocals, fiddle, Irish flute, mandolin, guitar, and bodhran.
Start your weekend early, kick off your shoes and dance on the grass!
There are no tickets for this show; regular site admission charges apply. The band will put out a hat for contributions to their travel and tipple fund.
