About Green Fields of America and support
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The Green Fields of America were formed in 1978 in Philadelphia by musician and folklorist Mick Moloney at the request of the Smithsonian Institution. The group was created to present and subsequently tour some of Irish America's finest musicians and dancers. It was the first group on either side of the Atlantic to bring together Irish vocal, instrumental, and dance traditions on the concert and festival stage revealing a hidden Irish America.
Playing such venues as Carnegie Hall, Wolf Trap, The Smithsonian Institution, The Festival of American Folklife (now the Smithsonian Folklife Festival), the Milwaukee Irish Fest, and The National Folk Festival, the five members of the band at the time all received the most prestigious National Heritage Awards.
The current (2018) membership in the group consists of Moloney, O'Connell, long-time associate Billy McComiskey (button-accordion), Athena Tergis (fiddle), Liz Hanley (fiddle and vocals), Brendan Dolan (keyboards) and Niall O'Leary (Irish dance and spoons).
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Green Fields of America and support are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
