Bethlehem, PA – February 19, 2024 – Join us as at ArtsQuest throughout the month of March for two Irish themed events: the return of a popular Irish band and four comedian friends that will have you laughing the night away.

The Irish Comedy Tour will perform on Friday March 8 at the MusikFest Cafe. Enjoy a night filled with laughter as Derek, Michael, Damon and Derrick, a foursome with Irish backgrounds, tear apart and validate all things Irish! They are also musicians, and each has hilarious and personal stories to share that will make your belly laugh and leave you ‘greening’ from ear to ear.

Ticket prices start at $32 per person and go up to $35. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Get there early to enjoy a delicious dinner before the show at 6:30 p.m. You must be 18 years or older or have a parent/guardian with you if you’re between 13-17 years of age.

“We are excited to celebrate the Irish heritage of our region with the best of music and comedy direct from Ireland for this year’s holiday month,” said Patrick Brogan, Chief Programming Officer. “Dervish is an icon of Celtic music from County Sligo bringing their traditional sound while Derrick Keane of Dublin and his group of comedians and musicians will have you laughing all night at the Irish Comedy Tour.”

Looking for something fun to do the week leading up to St. Patrick’s Day? You’re in luck because on Wednesday March 13, 2024, Dervish is coming back to the Lehigh Valley as part of their United States tour. Dervish is known as one of the best interpreters of Irish folk music and the band was recently recognized with a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award for their work. This performance will include music from their upcoming album, The Great Irish Songbook Chapter 2 which will be released later this year. Get ready to ‘shamrock and roll’ the night away listening to Irish folk music by a group that started as childhood friends.

Tickets start at $29 per person and go up to $35. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Arrive early and have dinner with us before the show at 6:00 p.m.
