From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles--just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry an English Lord.
Please join us for an informative and entertaining evening when we conduct our 133rd annual meeting with special guest Carol Wallace, author of To Marry an English Lord. Ms. Wallace will share some of the fascinating stories and anecdotes from her book and at the conclusion of her presentation, books will be available for purchase and signing. (Great Christmas gifts for those Downton Abbey fans in your life!)

Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence - and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins, one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.

This tandem has been performing together since 2009, combining Falkenau’s traditional fiddle playing with singer/songwriter/guitarist Ivan Murray’s songs to create a harmonious blend of Irish and American influenced jams. Stringing together stunning arrangements in the style of Chris Thile, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, and others, while delivering insightful lyrics and spot-on performances, this Irish duo won’t disappoint! Their ability to blend the Irish traditions with some rootsy American and well-crafted original compositions has made folks stop and listen. Be sure to be one of them and join us for an evening of musical entertainment straight from Galway City!
Please note seating is limited.
