The Drowsy Lads, long considered one of our nation’s top touring Irish Bands, will headline the final installment of the Montani Semper Liberi – Music & Art 2021 Concert Series, when they take the stage at the Bell Tower Theatre, in New Manchester, WV, on Saturday, November 13.
The Drowsy Lads thundered onto the Irish music scene in the U.S. over 15 years ago and have become fan favorites at every turn. Sticking to traditional roots, the Lads bring a fire and excitement that quickly wins over audiences. They bring to the stage a concoction of “we dare you to hold still” Irish dance tunes as well as a full emotional gamut of songs and good humor.
Local solo artist, John Edwards will open the event at 6:10 p.m., performing both original and song covers on guitar, vocals and harmonica. The Drowsy Lads are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. The artwork of long time music and art friend and contributor Chuck Picklesimer, who passed away in March 2021, will be on display. Nine year old Mallory Lynch, a fourth grader at New Manchester Elementary, will serve as the emcee of the event.
Admission to MSL-Music & Art at the Bell Tower II is free to all ages.For information, call 304-374-7474.
