The tale of the Irish in song

March 13, 2011 7:00:24 AM PDT
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, Old St. Patrick's Church will perform a musical extravaganza.

For a preview, Rodrick Dixon and 10-year-old Kate Wild visited the ABC7 studio to sing.

You can watch them and other singers and dancers live at the 15th annual "Siamsa na nGael" event, which celebrates the Celtic Arts and St. Patrick's Day.

This year's concert will feature music from the Chieftains' new album, "Santiago," South American music arranged by Scott Stevenson, and Celtic tunes arranged by Gary Fry. Actor Martin Sheen will narrate. Proceeds support the church and the Center for Social Concerns on the Old St. Pat's campus.
