From the Del Norte Association for Cultural Awareness:

(Crescent City, CA) Del Norte Association for Cultural Awareness (DNACA) is pleased to announce a concert with the traditional Celtic sounds of the band Possibly Irish.

“We’re happy to bring the next concert in our 2022-23 Performance Series season to the community, with Possibly Irish,” says DNACA Executive Director Stephanie La Torre. “Celtic music is the most requested music genre from our supporters. We are glad to show our appreciation for their partnership through the presentation of this upcoming concert.”

Possibly Irish is known for energetic Celtic performances including foot stomping traditional Irish pub songs and beautiful, rich vocal harmonies. All six bandmates sing and play a wide variety of instruments including traditional Irish instruments like the Bodhran drum, Irish whistle, and fiddle, plus the hammered dulcimer, accordion, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, bass, guitar, and more.

DNACA is inviting the community to “Kick Off St. Paddy's Day” celebrations with this concert. “It seems a shame to only celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on one day, and we don’t want to pull audiences from other community events. This seems a good way to get the celebrations started,” says La Torre.

Suitable for all audiences, Possibly Irish will be presented on Friday March 10th, at 7pm, at the Tolowa Event Center, inside the Lucky 7 Casino complex at 350 N. Indian Road in Smith River, CA. Tickets are $20 for General, $18 for Seniors over 65, and $15 for Students. They are available through DNACA.Eventbrite.com or at Del Norte Office Supply in Crescent City. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door.

The remainder of DNACA’s Performance Series season includes two more concerts.

Friday, April 7, 2023 Grammy® award-winning singer/songwriter Steve Leslie will appear in “How Sweet it Is! Steve Leslie Sings James Taylor.” This show is not an impersonator show, although Leslie does bear an uncanny resemblance to the legendary singer. As the show’s title suggests, Leslie will sing the music of James Taylor, but also his own music, which he has penned for Kenny Rogers, Mark Chesnutt, George Strait, Ricky Skaggs, Darius Rucker, and others.

The season will conclude on Friday, May 12, 2023 with Gideon Freudmann:CelloBop. This isn’t your grandma’s cello concert! With a modern artist’s approach, Freudmann creates a new realm of unique improvisational blends of classical, blues, jazz, electronic, funk, and folk music - all on an electric cello! Freudmann’s signature sound is nuanced, intricate, and fun.

DNACA would not be able to present such outstanding performances without the generous support of program underwriters Patty Brunsing, Lisé Hamilton, Bill and Kathy Maffett, Nick and Lisa Rail Music Fund, and Bob and Diane Weir. DNACA’s in-kind supporters are Bicoastal Media, Del Norte Office Supply, and Lucky 7 Casino.

DNACA is funded in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency and by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Outreach and engagement activities by artists are made possible by TourWest, a program of WESTAF, the Western States Arts Federation.
