Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner!

Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day a wee bit early when Toss the Feathers returns to Hudson Valley Community College to perform Irish and traditional music at noon on Thursday, Feb. 29, in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium on the Troy campus. The one-hour performance is free to the public; no reservations or tickets are needed to attend.

Toss the Feathers features Amy Schoch, violin, viola, vocals; Dave Smith, Irish bouzouki, banjo, vocals, and David Pease, Irish flute and whistles. The three musicians met at informal Irish and traditional music sessions and formed a trio in 2015 to play at local pubs, weddings and festivals. Recent performances were at New Year’s Fest and The Flurry in Saratoga Springs. Flutist Dan Majallali often joins the group that also hosts a monthly evening of Irish music, dancing and storytelling at The Olde English Pub in Albany.
