(Performing Arts Series at Shepherd to present FullSet on February 22)

Shepherdstown, WV--The Performing Arts Series at Shepherd University (PASS) and Shepherdstown Music and Dance will present the Irish band FullSet on Friday, February 22 at 8 p.m. in the Frank Center.

Made up of six musicians in their twenties, FullSet plays traditional Irish tunes with the energy of youth. Named New Group of the Year at the 2012 Live Ireland Music Awards, FullSet has received critical acclaim for their debut release "Live at Liberty," and has been compared to Altan and Danu by Irish Music Magazine. Raised in the Irish folk tradition, many of the members of the band have been playing together since their teens, and include a three-time All-Ireland fiddle champion, an uilleann piper who has won the All-Ireland title six times, and a button accordionist with several All-Ireland titles on accordion and melodeon. FullSet also includes a flutist, guitar player, and singer.

Tickets to the event may be purchased through the Shepherd University Bookstore at 304-876-5219, www.shepherdbook.com, or on the ground level of the Shepherd Student Center, 210 North King Street, Shepherdstown. Tickets are $18 for the general public, $15 for senior citizens and Shepherd staff, $12 for Shepherdstown Music and Dance members, $8 for kids under 18, and free to Shepherd students with a valid Rambler ID.
