This year Manotick Brass celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in style with a program full of Irish ballads and pub songs. As a result of their successful tour of Ireland in 2014 Manotick Brass has an extensive repertoire of authentic Irish tunes. These include some of the favourite songs heard in many Irish pubs as well as many well-known Irish ballads. The program also includes several arrangements commissioned by Manotick Brass including Erin go Bragh (Ireland Forever) and “A Touch of Irish”.
On March 17 Manotick Brass performed two concerts for audiences at The Court at Barrhaven and Carlingwood Retirement Community which was celebrating its second anniversary on March 17.
