Extra Credit: Irish Music & Dance

The PSU Performing Arts and Lecture Series will present an evening of Irish music and dance on Friday, Feb. 4, with a performance by An Dochas and the Haran Irish Dancers. The performance is set for 7 p.m. in Pittsburg’s Memorial Auditorium.

An Dochas, Gaelic for “the hope,” is an Irish band. The Haran Irish Dancers, meanwhile, is a troop founded 15 years ago in Kettle Falls, Washington. Together, the groups offer a performance that combines traditional Irish music with energetic, award-winning dance.

Using authentic Irish instrumentation, including Uileann pipes, whistles, bodhran, fiddle, mandolin and guitar, An Dochas blends new tunes with old in a diverse repertoire.

The Haran Irish Dancers have performed in America, Austria, and Japan and have had multiple appearances at the Irish Step Dancing World Championships in Ireland.

Tickets for the performance are $5 for the general public and $3 for PSU faculty and staff, persons 65 and older or 17 and under. PSU students with a valid ID are admitted free. Seating is reserved on the floor and general admission in the balcony.
