Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach (ORMACO) kicks off the 2017-18 World Tour of Music series with the Columbus-based Irish group, The General Guinness Band, at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 28 at Highland High School, 4150 Ridge Road, Medina. This acclaimed group has performed the music of Ireland for over 35 years in hundreds of concerts, programs, festivals, television and radio programs, including shows at Dollywood’s Valley Theater and performing with the Chieftains. Combining songs collected by vocalist and Kilkenny, Ireland native James O’Shea with energetic fiddle tunes, four part harmonies, and Irish step dancing, the band’s richly told stories-in-song also incorporate humor and provide insight into the charming lore and myth of the Irish. As part of the festivities, Sully’s Irish Pub in Medina will be offering a three course pre-concert Irish dinner for $15 per person (Reuben dip, Irish stew and cheesecake). Dinner reservations are required at 330-764-3333 and mention the concert to receive this special deal.
