The evening features a reading by novelist and memoirist Hugo Hamilton, followed by traditional and original Irish music of The Narrowbacks – Terry Winch, Jesse Winch, Brendan Mulvihill, Linda Hickman and Eileen (Korn) Estes – who will be joined at times by step dancers from the  Caulkin School of Traditional Irish Dance.

The event, a fundraiser for HoCoPoLitSo, will feature a raffle of three different baskets*, two Irish themed and one themed for the upcoming Blackbird Poetry Festival (April 26). Among the raffle items: two tickets to attend brunch with Mr. Hamilton and the HoCoPoLitSo board the following morning.
