11:00am Irish Music Festival at Murphy’s Law, 2 George St, Pawtucket

Musicians from across New England will be on hand for the 4th annual James McNally Wilson Irish Music Festival sponsored by the Sons and Daughters of Erin Pawtucket. The sights and sounds of Ireland will fill the festival for this free family event, scheduled on Saturday, September 12, 2015, from 11 am to 11 pm. The event will be held outside at Murphy’s Law Irish Pub, 2 George St., Pawtucket.
