With Celtic music in their blood, Cormorant’s Fancy uses traditional instruments and arrangements. Their compelling cross-generational lineup unites the past, present and future, and their music rings true leading them to be described as both “spellbinding” and “energetic.” This will be an event for all-ages.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir by Frank McCourt, Angela’s Ashes was produced by the United States, the United Kingdom and Ireland. Born in Limerick, Frank McCourt defines what it means to overcome what has been delivered to you in the lottery of life, and we celebrate with him as he finally arrives as an adult in America to pursue his dream of becoming a writer. Directed by Alan Parker, and starring Emily Watson, Robert Carlyle and Joe Breen, the film offers a stunning soundtrack composed and conducted by John Williams, and features songs by Billie Holiday and Sinéad O’Connor.

Tickets to Cormorant’s Fancy are $22 in advance and $25 at the door. Tickets to Angela’s Ashes are $5. For more information about the  music, dance, comedy, film and special events happening at Uptown, visit
