Get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit with the Celtic rock fusion of The Prodigals on Saturday, March 12, at 8 p.m. in Centenary College’s Lackland Center.
Described as “Indelibly Irish” by the New York Times and “fiery, fierce, frenetic” by the Irish Times, The Prodigals have toured the continent for more than 10 years, gaining a wide fan-base and garnering plenty of media attention.
Blending a passion for the traditional music of Ireland with a funky, anarchic energy that is pure New York, their performances have been called “stunning and joyous” and “brilliant.”
The band’s members, who largely grew up in Ireland, are led by vocalists Dave Fahy, also on guitar, and Gregory Grene, also on accordion. Originally from Galway, Fahy is one of the more sought after Irish guitar players and singers on the New York music scene today. Grene, who hails from County Cavan, has been called a “glorious singer” and virtuoso of an accordion player.
Advance tickets for The Prodigals are $25 for adults and $17.50 for children under 12. Ticket prices increase $5 on the day of the event. All ticket sales are final.
