Ah Surely. Irish Music and Dance
The Ah Surely Irish music and dance trio will showcase the history and culture of Ireland in an energetic foot-tapping, hand-clapping interactive concert of music and movement. The sounds of traditional Irish instruments and “hard shoe” step dancing are sure to lift your spirits as you take part in this lively affair.
Ah Surely is a trio of three performers and teaching artists: John Maschinot (uilleann pipes, flute, penny whistle, and bodhran), Evan Kinney (guitar, vocals, and fiddle), and Claire Shirey (Irish Step dance, fiddle, and concertina). They’ve performed at numerous schools, festivals, and on concert stages throughout the Southeast.
