With the winter that has been upon us, a warm, spirited evening is what we seem to need and you’ll have just that this year on March 14th, HoCoPoLitSo’s 36th Annual Irish Evening.
You who love literature, music, and art are invited to hear the beautiful cadences of not only one but two wonderful Irish poets Paula Meehan (Ireland’s Professor of Poetry) and Theo Dorgan (O’Shaughnessy Prize, BBC Radio) as they read their work and pay tribute to the late great Seamus Heaney, followed by the incomparable Irish music of Narrowbacks, featuring All-Ireland fiddle great Brendan Mulvihill, and fabulous stepdancing by members of the Culkin School. Did I mention the profusion of Irish coffees, signature drink “Jameson Ginger,” and scones?
HoCoPoLitSo relies on proceeds from this annual fundraiser to create live literary programs throughout the year, so in buying tickets, you are not only giving yourself the gift of a fun and elevating evening but investing in the 2014 arts and culture calendar of Howard County.

Please share this note with those who you believe would enjoy the evening! It is quite an occasion. Last year, Governor Martin O’Malley, himself, saw fit to join the festivities, taking in Colum McCann’s first public reading from Transatlantic before joining the Narrowbacks on stage for a song or two; you can read about that here.
Thank you for supporting the literary arts in our community. We are looking forward to a warm and spirited Irish Evening this March 14th, something to shake the winter and all this snow from our souls. We hope to see you then.
All the best,
Those of us at HoCoPoLitSo
