Next (Virtual) Event:

Sunday, March 14

1:00 PM (Mountain Time)

St. Patrick's Day Party!

Borrowing from our fellow Celts, the Scots, and their tradition of opening a Burns Night Supper by piping in a haggis and reciting the poet’s “address” to the famous food, we will open our St. Patrick’s Zoom Party with an ode to that most noble of Irish staples, the potato.  Zooming entertainment will also include:

  • Miranda Rensberger on Harp
  • Jug of Punch with Irish songs and tunes
  • Special virtual performances by Brightburn Academy of Irish Dance
  • The Duke City Ceili Band

And, melding old and new IAS St. Pat’s Party traditions, we will have Scottish Highland Pipes by Suzanne “Aden” Kemp and Irish Uilleann Pipes by Dirk Mewes!! There will also be St. Pat’s trivia, stories and Irish blessings throughout the party, and we’ll conclude with what will hopefully be a new tradition, a sing-along of “The Parting Glass.”

This event is free and open to the public, but we will gladly accept donations to help fund the entertainers!

To join the party on March 14, if you are not already an IAS member, please send an email to Ellen to receive the Zoom link:
