St. Patrick’s Day is coming and it’s time to kick up your heels and do a little jig! The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council invites you to a special St. Patrick’s Day show featuring the Celtic group Sephira and special guests the Gothard Sisters, on Saturday, March 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Shorecrest Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for students/seniors.

Sephira are two classically trained musicians from Ireland who define themselves as “classical crossover”, blending their violin driven songs with beautiful, ethereal vocals. This show will feature a selection of their original songs along with traditional Irish favorites. The local Irish step dancing/violin playing sister-act The Gothard Sisters will open this high energy show.

More on Sephira
Joyce O’Leary (vocals and violin) and Ruth O’Leary (violin and vocals) have forged their own musical niche and, while they define themselves as “classical crossover,” this show will feature a selection of their original songs mixed with traditional Irish favorites!

In 2008, Sephira began touring with Celtic Thunder, hailed as Billboard’s Top World Music Artist and Top World Imprint of 2009. To date, Sephira have joined the group for two U.S. tours and one tour in Canada. Word of Sephira’s unique sound is spreading quickly around the world. Come experience the flavor of Ireland with these amazing performers.

Sephira’s debut album Believe was released to critical acclaim in 2006, and a new album is currently in the works. Since the release of Believe, Sephira have completed two successful Irish tours and appeared live in countless TV performances with artists such as Michael BublĂ©, Enya, Andrea Bocelli, Westlife, Kanye West, Alison Moyet, Tom Baxter, Katherine Jenkins, Brian Kennedy, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Paul Harrington.

The Gothard Sisters are three sisters from Edmonds, Washington who are champion Irish dancers and musicians. They use their talents to perform entertaining shows for audiences of all ages around the country. Greta, Willow and Solana have taken their love of Irish step dancing and the violin and turned it into a high energy musical act that has been touring the country for several years.

Their shows include fast fiddle numbers, singing ballads, and Irish dancing incorporated into dance numbers featuring country, Irish, flamenco and rock music as well as stories, educational tidbits and a good time for everyone.

Shorecrest Performing Arts Center is located at 15343 25th Ave NE, Shoreline, WA 98155. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling 206-417-4645.
