On August 24th at 7pm Join the McCarthy Family for a concert at the Raquette Lake School.
The McCarthy Family is a singing group that specializes in three-part-vocal harmony renditions of folk favorites from both the United States & Ireland. The trio features American treasures such as Stephen Foster’s, Hard Times; and Henry Clay Work’s, My Grandfather’s Clock; as well as more modern favorites by Woodie Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan and others. Traditional songs from Deirdre’s native Ireland are also featured. Deirdre has brought the lively, lilting musical culture of her native land to audiences here in America with traditional songs sung in English such as, I’ll Tell Me Ma, She Moved Through the Fair, and Molly Malone, as well as haunting songs sung in the ancient language of her homeland, Irish Gaelic. With their unique blend of Irish and American cultures, it is the McCarthy Family’s wish to give each audience a concert experience that is highly entertaining and richly educational.
This project is made possible, in part, with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
