The band offered a new take on tradition that sounds a chord that is raucous one minute and sensitive and serene the next. Special guests performing with the band will include vocalist Cathie Ryan, harpist Gráine Hambly, uilleann pipe player Tommy Martin, and step dancers from the Blanchette School of Irish Dance.

CAC programs and activities are sponsored, in part, by National Endowment for the Arts, Nevada Arts Council, Nevada Commission on Tourism, Fallon Convention & Tourism Authority and Western Nevada Title.
