Fundraiser and Concert Tribute to Mick Moloney

Saturday October 22nd at the N.Y. Irish Center L.I.C.
Reception: 7.00pm   Concert: 8.00pm

This annual concert raises funds to support the Mercy Center, a charity that serves the poorest of poor children in the slums of Bangkok, Thailand. Cork-born singer Donie Carroll initiated these concerts and has recruited a stellar lineup for this year's event, which will also serve as a tribute to the late Mick Moloney, who introduced Donie to the Mercy Center and performed at all the previous concerts. Performers will include the famed singer/songwriter Tommy Sands and some of Mick's "Green Fields of America" bandmates, including button accordionist Billy McComiskey, concertina player/singer Brenda Castles and fiddler/singer Liz Hanley. Pianist/flute player Brendan Dolan, uilleann piper Cillian Vallely, fiddler Heather Bixler, the Niall O'Leary dancers and Donie Carroll himself will perform. Tickets are $70 each, and early booking is advisable. Text or call Donie at 917-723-7488 to secure your ticket which also includes a wine reception and finger food.
