BRT presents Doyle’s Roscommon Soles
Blackstone River Theatre will present Kevin Doyle’s Roscommon Soles “Health to the Ladies” on Saturday, November 26, 7:00 p.m., at Blackstone River Theatre, 549 Broad St., Cumberland, RI. Admission is $20.00 advance, $24.00 day of show. For reservations visit www. riverfolk.org or call Blackstone River Theatre at (401) 725-9272.
Audiences are invited to travel “over the river (the Blackstone, of course) and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go” to celebrate a Thanksgiving weekend with Kevin Doyle’s Roscommon Soles. Funded in part by a grant from Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, this evening’s custom-themed concert “Health to the Ladies” is named for an old traditional jig and calls out a toast to the generations of women who keep Irish traditions alive from pantry to parlor as old ways and new customs blend around holiday hearths at home and in America.
“Health to the Ladies” will spotlight the contributions in dance, music, and song made by some amazing and historic Rhode Island women of the performing arts. Their influence was felt nationally and locally, from vaudeville to the age of radio and television, and on dance stages or in concert halls and recording studios.
