On Saturday evening, March 16, Hawks Nest State Park will present an evening of American Irish songs and stories, performed by West Virginia’s “Bard of Education,” actor and musician, Mick Souter. This will include numerous sing-alongs and performances on a wide array of instruments, including banjo, fiddle, auto harp, guitar, dulcimer and mandolin. The show will be interspersed with humorous and historically-based tales that set-up the songs while adding an intriguing touch of Irish color to the evening. Since this is presented as a dinner theater, the food service at Hawks Nest will prepare a sumptuous feast of Irish culinary favorites to complement the evening, delight the senses and charm the palate of even the most discriminating Irishman. For more information on the performance or reservations, call 304-658-5212 or visit www.hawksnestsp.com.
