Join us for a special Spring edition of Fridays in the Fifth with Dublin folk singer/songwriter Billy Treacy! The virtual performance is available on the Irish American Heritage Center Facebook page, or by joining the event using this link: FIF with Billy Treacy
In days gone by you would have found him playing in or around Temple Bar Dublin, in some of the Iconic Pubs of the area with members of the band The Scope. In fact if the weather was anyway nice you could see them all busking in The Dame District https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7CjRwNHN3k
Heavily influenced by the songs of Shane MacGowan, The Pogues, The Dubliners and The Fureys you will hear a great mix of Original Material and Classic Folk songs on the night.
“I’m really looking forward to playing (Virtually) in the Irish American Heritage Centre again and reconnecting with the people of Chicago, back in the 90’s I played some of my first Gigs there and in The Abbey. I hope you’ll join me in my house and we’ll have some banter and share some stories and songs”
