Saint Pat's at Saint Anthony

BYNRIE will perform a 1-hour concert at the Saint Anthony Park Lutheran Church of traditional Irish music written and arranged by Sherry Ladig. Medleys of hornpipes, reels, and jigs contrast with sweet and melancholy airs. Instrumentation includes Irish bohdran and penny whistle in addition to mandolins, mandolas, guitars, and bass.
