Commemorative Concert for the 1916 Easter Rising

  • Rockfish Valley Community Center @ The Rockfish Lounge 190 Rockfish School Lane Afton, VA, 22920 United States (map)

In honor of the 103rd anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, Ryan and Cat Dunne will be performing a set of thrilling songs and stories about the rising; including verse written by some of the leaders of the rising itself. This was the pivotal Irish rebellion that ultimately led to Ireland’s southern counties claiming their independence from England for the first time in 800 years.  

Also being shown will be Ryan's commemorative crankie puppet show "The Foggy Dew" featuring shadow puppets and a 30 foot watercolor painting detailing the events of the rising.

Not to be missed!
