Bonita Lestina Performance Series Presents Irish Breakfast Band

The City of Fairfax Commission on the Arts presents the Irish Breakfast Band as part of the Bonita Lestina Performance Series.  The program is titled "Traditional Irish Folk Music & Dance." Join us for this FREE event!

The Irish Breakfast Band is a diverse group of DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland residents who meet Saturday mornings for a potluck breakfast. After breakfast is a rehearsal of its repertoire of Celtic tunes. These Saturday meetings are usually held at a different house each week, with attendance often exceeding a dozen musicians, though rarely the exact same set two weeks in a row. Most performances feature 8-12 musicians, often several fiddles and flutes, a guitar or two, a drummer, a hammered dulcimer, banjo and at least one vocalist. A child-friendly band, the group often brings extra percussion instruments to give young audience members a chance to participate.
