The LowCountry Irish Fest is a musical and cultural gathering celebrating all things uniquely Irish in the South Carolina Lowcountry. From some of it’s founding fathers to plantation owners, laborers and pirates, the Irish have always played a key role in Charleston.
The Charleston Music Hall is one of the oldest buildings in downtown
Charleston. Known historically as the Tower Depot, it was designed by
Charleston architect Edward C. Jones and completed in 1850 as a passenger
station of the South Carolina Railroad. In 1995, the Bennett-Hofford Company
transformed it into an arts venue.
Admission is $25 for adults/$15 for students/$12 for kids 12 and under. Location: 37 John St., Charleston. Tickets are available at the Music Hall box office or online at Tinyurl.com/LowcountryIrishFest. For more information, visit CharlestonIrish.com.
