Irish music in Cape May highlights events At The Shore Today


What luck: Mick Moloney in Cape May

What Is It: One of the legends of Irish-American music and folklore, Mick Moloney, right, comes to the Cape May Convention Hall today - which just happens to be St. Patrick's Day. So if you're looking for an authentic way to celebrate, this could be your pick.

What To Expect: Moloney, an Irish lad who came to America in 1973, has recorded or produced more than 40 albums of traditional music. But that's hardly all he has done - his career includes credits as musician, folklorist, educator, author and radio/TV personality.
