Mount Holyoke Folk Music and Dance Society (FMADS) hosted its St. Patrick’s Day Irish Showcase in Chapin Auditorium Thursday night. The holiday event encouraged attendees to wear green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, but otherwise focused on the celebration of Irish performance styles, music, texts, prominent figures, heritage and culture.
