Shippen Manor Virtual Concert: Paddy and the Pale Boys

A special New Year's Eve Treat! This week's virtual Lawn Concert features Paddy and the Pale Boys, who, in the event you weren't aware, is Your Favorite Irish Band. The lads have been at it since 1997, performing their unique arrangements of the  music of Ireland and Scotland, along with American favorites while also introducing the band's own original songs. Performing are Martin O'Connor, vocals, bass; Mike Hoffman, vocals, guitar, mandolin, banjo; Ray Hoffman, keyboard, fancy vest and bow tie; Clobberin' Bobby McGhee, drums; with special guest Shane Dunn, guitar. The virtual concerts are offered in lieu of the annual Lawn Concert Series that was sidelined in the COVID-19 pandemic. The Warren County Cultural and Heritage Division of the Department of Land Preservation, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, invites you to enjoy online concerts by the bands that were scheduled to perform.
