Let Magical Strings take you on a Mother’s Day journey to Ireland, Hawaii, Magic Hill and to places of the heart.

With harps, dulcimers, concertina, button accordion, whistles, guitar and more the group will be performing right in its living room and sharing music and stories directly with you from 3 to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 10 on Facebook. Make yourself a cup of tea or a drink of your choice, sit back and enjoy.

During this time when many musicians and arts organizations are suffering due to the necessities of social distancing – indeed, many of our concerts, festivals and east coast spring tour had to be cancelled – we are grateful that with the magic of live-streaming we can perform for you, wherever you are, the group said in a press release.

Enjoy, start a watch party, share with your family and friends and in the comments let us know from where you are watching. It’s free, but donations are graciously appreciated at or at
