Celebrate the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, if not its precise calendrical occurrence, on Sunday, March 11 at the Ashokan Center, when the Vermont roots band Low Lily teams up with seven-time All-Ireland accordion champion John Whelan and fiddler Katie McNally, who has been dubbed “the new face of Scottish fiddling in the USA” by The Living Tradition. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., the performance will feature traditional and original music from both sides of the Atlantic sung in sweet harmonies and played on two fiddles, accordion, guitars and mandolin. The players will lead a talk about the intersections of Irish, Scottish and American roots music at 2 p.m.
