Hopewell Theater Presents Irish Folk Singer Karan Casey, Irish Films & Irish Meal Deal In March

(HOPEWELL, NJ) --  Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all week long at Hopewell Theater with some of the best of Irish culture: live music by one of the most innovative, provocative and imitated voices in Irish folk music, Karan Casey, plus a special corned beef and cabbage meal from The Peasant Grill. Fans of Irish cinema won’t want to miss screenings of critically acclaimed dramas The Wind That Shakes The Barley and Michael Collins, as well as the a special installment of our Films That Made Music Series featuring the musical comedy The Boys And Girl From County Clare

The Wind That Shakes The Barley (screenings on Saturday, March 14 at 12:00pm and Sunday, March 15 at 7:30pm) Ireland 1919: workers from field and country unite to form volunteer guerrilla armies to face the ruthless 'Black and Tan' squads that are being shipped from Britain to block Ireland's bid for independence. Driven by a deep sense of duty and a love for his country, Damien abandons his burgeoning career as a doctor and joins his brother, Teddy, in a dangerous and violent fight for freedom. As the freedom fighters' bold tactics bring the British to breaking point, both sides finally agree to a treaty to end the bloodshed. But, despite the apparent victory, civil war erupts and the families, who fought side by side, find themselves pitted against one another as sworn enemies, putting their loyalties to the ultimate test. Winner of the 2006 Palme D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Directed by Ken Loach, starring Cillian Murphy, Pádraic Delaney, Liam Cunningham, Orla Fitzgerald. 2006; 126 minutes.

Karan released her first album with the group Solas, which quickly became the most celebrated Irish band in the U.S., and her four years with the group were pivotal.
