Irish dancers and musicians will be featured during Raglan Road’s fifth annual Great Irish Hooley over Labor Day weekend.

You don’t have to wait until St. Patrick’s Day to get your Irish on, thanks to the fifth annual Great Irish Hooley being celebrated by Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant at Disney Springs over Labor Day weekend.

To celebrate the Hooley’s fifth year, Raglan Road will present a brand-new, 90-minute live show of music and dance – The Rhythms of Raglan – produced in Ireland, exported to Raglan Road and directed by David Hayes (Riverdance, “The Voice” Ireland edition) with guest choreographers including Michael Donellan (Lord of the Dance).

The Rhythms of Raglan cast will debut this new 90-minute production during the Great Irish Hooley at 4 p.m. Sept. 2, and at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Sept. 3, 4 and 5.

The music festival’s multi-band lineup will feature headliner Screaming Orphans and other bands popular on the festival circuit. A traditional Irish social celebration, the “Hooley” combines music ranging from traditional to rock tunes with entertainment and fun for the whole family (no cover charge). This year’s Great Irish Hooley will feature performances beginning at noon Friday and continuing each day and night through late Monday. This year’s Hooley band and entertainment lineup includes Screaming Orphans, Jake Richardson, Flat Out, Marianne Fraser Band, Swingin’ On the Gate, The Raglan Roots Coalition, The High Road, Cooney & Ryan, The Raglan Road Irish Dancers, and the Flyin’ Marys. The Hooley also will feature Celtic face-painting Saturday through Monday.
