Margaret Rush, a traditional Irish singer and guitarist from Dublin, Ireland, now living in Raleigh, North Carolina, will lead an interactive, fun, musical and movement experience for young children and their grown-ups. Bring along babies, toddlers and children up to 7 years old, to a 45-minute class including songs, movement, musical props, and of course lots of fun and silliness – all through Irish music!
