Irish-French Link for Franco-Am Week

John Whelan and Donna He’bert: The Irish-French Connection will perform Wednesday, June 23, at 7.30 pm, at Immaculate Conception School Hall, 218 East Merrimack Street, as part of Lowell’s Franco-American Week. The performance, honoring Lowell’s French-Canadian and Irish-American heritages, is sponsored by Lowell National Historical Park. All are invited for an evening of award-winning fiddling, legendary Irish button-accordion playing, brilliant flat-pick and finger-style guitar playing, and singing of Gaelic, English, and French songs.

Parking is available behind the school. The free concert follows a traditional ham-and-bean supper for which there is a charge. For details about the meal and other events during Franco-American Week, visit
