Footwork & Fiddles: An Irish/Appalachian Dance Exchange

In association with Appalshop, we are proud to bring to the festival a uniquely commissioned show that will examine and showcase the similarities and differences between Irish and Appalachian dance styles.

Presented by Carla Gover (Kentucky, USA) and Bernadette Nic Gabhann (Ireland) we will explore the journey that Irish fiddle tunes and dance styles made from all over Ireland to the heart of the Appalachian region and back.

Saturday, June 11

Time 2:30pm
