THE 2021 CELTIC FESTIVAL: FEATURED ACTS
FEATURED HEADLINER: CHARLIE ZAHM
Charlie Zahm is one of the most popular soloists at Celtic music festivals, Maritime, and American Traditional music events anywhere east of the Mississippi. With a baritone voice some have described as "coming along once in a generation," Charlie has become one of the most successful performers on the Celtic festival circuit, weaving magical moments of Scottish and Irish history for the listener and viewer, with passion for the performance and a chosen repertoire pleasing to all members of the family. A master of the guitar as well, Charlie brings an authentic love and respect for the music he sings-and with dashes of humor and a light in his eyes, he will draw you into the stories of his songs!

FEATURED ACT: THE MCALEER-PAULSON SCHOOL OF IRISH DANCE
For over 50 years the McAleer School of Irish Dance has served the tri-state area, providing Irish dance instruction for people of all ages and levels of advancement. The McAleer tradition of Irish dance began 50 years ago when Alice McAleer, Veronica’s aunt, began the first McAleer School of Irish Dance in Ireland. When Veronica emigrated from Belfast in 1967, she started her own school in Delaware. Veronica has coached generations of children and adults and enriched our community through passing on her live and knowledge of Irish dance and culture.
