BOYERTOWN PA – A week after presenting a classic French farce, the historic State Theatre, 61 N. Reading Ave., continues its stage tour of Europe with the “Songs of Ireland” concert March 7.

The show features Killen Clark, The King Brothers, and The Chester County Emerald Society Pipe Band, each bringing their own take on classic Irish music to the stage. It kicks off at 7 p.m., with doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are currently available online at www.statetheatreboyertown.com for the discounted price of $18. If seats remain they also can be purchased at the door on the day of the show for $23.

  • Acoustic duo Killen Clark, comprised of Kim Killen and Gerry Clark, offers up Irish folk songs of “life, love, the seas and the sod” featuring guitar, tin whistle, and exceptional vocals. They will also emcee the event.
  • While firmly rooted in the brother-style duets of the bluegrass world, the King Brothers bring their tight vocal harmonies to Irish folk. Instrumentally, expect some combination of guitar, five string banjo, mandolin, tenor banjo, and bouzouki.
  • The Chester County Emerald Society Pipe Band is a voluntary group formed almost a decade ago. The bagpipe band is made up of Chester County law enforcement officers and approved civilians. It often performs in parades and Law Enforcement ceremonies.
