Irish Music and Dance

Come join us for an evening of Irish music and dancing with the Pete Kelly ceili band, Charlene Lowery and her dancers, moderated by Kevin Westley, the “Irish DJ.” Pete Kelly of Ronkonkoma is recognized as one of the premier Irish fiddle instructors in the New York metropolitan area, appearing at the library most recently as part of our accordion program. Charlene Lowery of Manhasset is also well known for her talented students who perform such classic ceili dances as the “Grey Gordons” and other traditional social dances. Kevin Westley of East Meadow, the current host of WHRU’s “That’s How I Spell Ireland” will introduce the dances.
The free program begins at 7 p.m. at the East Meadow Library, located at 1886 Front Street, East Meadow. For information, call the East Meadow Library at (516) 794-2570.

Bay House Tour Update
We are planning to have bay house tours this year! However we won’t know the late summer dates for a few more months since many of the surviving bay houses need substantial work before we can visit them. Stay tuned for details. If you would like to be on our advance notice list be sure to send us an e-mail. As always, Long Island Traditions’ members receive the first opportunity to register for the tours and receive a discount. To join and support LI Traditions, click here.
