Billy McComiskey said it best, “This was magical,” after a rollicking evening of Irish set and ceili dancing at McCathran Hall on a recent Saturday evening in October. The Fall Blackthorn Ceili, organized and managed by Obie, featured three great musicians, Joe DeZarn (fiddle), Billy McComiskey (accordion, including his classic Paolo Soprani instrument), Matt Mulqueen (keyboard), and the renowned caller, Marilyn Moore.

Tour of Guinness
A goodly bunch of us toured the Guinness Open Gate Brewery near Baltimore. 'Twas a splendid time - a detailed tour of the operations, chance to taste some experimental brews and good eats in the restaurant. View our photo album.
The dances we practice are selected from popular MD-DC-VA ceili and set dance group lists as well as other sources. Learn more about us.
