Plymouth Phil presents festive ‘Irish Pops’ Concert


PLYMOUTH, MA - - - The 94th Season of the Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra concludes with a sonic extravaganza celebrating the Emerald Isle. Steven Karidoyanes conducts Celtic Pops: A Feast of Irish Music, a festive Irish Pops event, hosted by amiable Irish-music radio personality, Seamus Mulligan. The program includes Leroy Anderson’s Irish Suite, Percy Grainger’s Irish Tune from County Derry (Danny Boy), music from Finian’s Rainbow, selections from Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, plus a bounty of traditional Irish fiddle tunes and sing-along songs. Featured guest ensembles are traditional Irish acoustic duo The Lindsays and the Irish Fiddlers from Quincy’s Congress School of Irish Music, Aidan Maher, director. This fun-filled affair takes place on Saturday, May 8th at 8PM in Plymouth’s Memorial Hall. Tickets are on sale now. Limited Cabaret-style table seating is available. Memorial Hall is fully accessible.

“We’ve put together a real party of a concert!” exclaims Conductor Karidoyanes. “There’s so much great Irish music for orchestra. This concert is full of tunes that are both happy and gorgeous.” He concludes with a laugh, “If you’re not singing along or tapping your toe, check your pulse!”

Local radio personality and entrepreneur Seamus Mulligan serves the event as guest host and brings a wealth of musical and cultural experience to this concert. In addition to broadcasting his “Feast of Irish Music” program every Sunday afternoon on Quincy’s WROL Radio (950 AM), Mulligan is the longtime general manager of the popular specialty Irish gift shops, The Irish Cottage.

The Lindsays are an accomplished husband-and-wife acoustic duo based in Plymouth. Stephen Lindsay is a guitarist and sings. Susan (Gedutis) Lindsay performs on Irish-style flute, whistle, and sax. Their music is inspired by the Irish tradition but colored by rock, jazz, and folk. The Irish Fiddlers from the Congress School of Irish Music also perform traditional music. These young-yet-seasoned musicians, ages 15 to 17, regularly perform throughout the greater-Boston area and have already performed in concert halls in Dublin, Ireland.

The Concert Sponsors are The Hallamore Corporation and Sullivan Tire and Auto Service. The 94th Season of the Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra is funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Individual ticket prices are $50, $45, $35 and $20. Limited Cabaret-style table seating is available for $65 and $55. Senior, Youth and Group discounts are offered. $5 student “rush” tickets are sold at the door one hour before the performance, as available.
