10th Annual VOICES OF IRELEAND By Write Out Loud Announced

Write Out Loud - an organization founded in 2007 with a commitment to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading literature aloud for a live audience - presents VOICES OF IRELAND, their tenth annual celebration of the Emerald Isle, with classic and contemporary Irish tales and music. Write out Loud has been producing Voices of Ireland every March since 2011. VOICES OF IRELAND is performed for one night only on Monday, March 16th at 7:30pm at Lamb's Players Theatre. Performers include Agustine Welles, Linda Libby, Walter Ritter & Veronica Murphy. Pre-show and intermission music will be provided by the Celtic Echoes.

Write Out Loud Artistic Director, Veronica Murphy shared, "Voices of Ireland is our most popular story concert each year. With the wealth of material from Ireland's rich literary culture, the most difficult task is to narrow the program down to just a few rewarding and moving stories to celebrate the land of my ancestors."
