Tribute to the FAMOUS McNULTY'S

Friday, the 12th was a special night for the FAMOUS McNULTY’S, the first family of Irish Music in the U.S.

Sponsored by the Irish Arts Center in New York City, and held at Symphony Space at 95th and Broadway, on New York’s Upper West Side, a sold out audience of 800 listened to the musical works of this legendary group that held court in Irish America from the 20s-60s.
Performing the music of this hallowed
family of Irish music was The Green Fields of America under the helm of
Mick Maloney, well-known composer
of Irish music and events producer, and professor of music at New York University. Joining him were a host of
versatile fiddlers, minstrel and banjo players and singers like Athena Tergis, Billy McCominskey, Brendan Dolan and Jerry O’Sullivan. The Neill O’Leary School of Irish Dance added to the evening’s entertainment. So did Gerry Timlin, Mary O’Dowd, Dermot Henry, Courtney Grogan, Julie Feeney, John Roberts and The Brooklyn String Quartet, and The Washington Square Harp and Shamrock Orchestra. Vince Giordana and the Nighthawks, an all- American swing orchestra completed the bill.

The evening was filled with a joyous response from the audience especially when Irish born balladeer Mary O’Dowd
began her ballad-Queenstown Harbor and her parting song, Let Ye All Be Irish Tonight.
The finale had Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly to a rousing conclusion.
