The Irish Diaspora

 Saturday, March 30th at 12:00 p.m. 

Join folklorist, folk-singer, and instrumentalist Tom O'Carroll for an examination of the Irish influence around the world from early times to the present. The narrative begins with the founding of the Dal Riada kingdom on the Scottish coast and then Irish monks journeying abroad. Tom will then detail through stories and song the Flight of the Earls, the Cromwellian clearances to the Caribbean and the Irish Brigades and Regiments of the Wild Geese formed in France, Spain, Portugal and Austria. Departures from Ireland due to the Great Hunger of the 1840s and transportation to Australia and Tasmania will be illustrated. In more recent times the Irish have fled a poorly managed economy and the music and songs of this period evoke an emotional underpinning not to be found in the mere telling of the facts.

March Art Show - Dr. George Vosgerichian

March 2024

During the month of March our meeting room art display will feature photographs by Dr. George Vosgerichian.  Dr. George Vosgerichian has been passionate about the Cape and photography since childhood. His fascination with photography culminated in building a 6x17 medium format panoramic film camera. In recent years, his love of aerial photography inspired him to photograph the entire coastline over Cape Cod & the Islands.

He has received tremendous feedback for his aerial photography. His photos regularly appear in magazines, travel guides, puzzles, galleries, and on social media. He was featured in the August, 2019 issue of Cape Cod LIFE Magazine, “The Sea From Sand & Sky,” a 6-page article showcasing his aerial and landscape photography. In 2020 and 2022, he won First and Second Prize in the Cape Cod LIFE Annual Photo Contest. Three of his images appeared in the Cape Cod LIFE: 2021 Annual Guide. His exhibit, “Soaring Above Cape Cod,” ran successfully for 2 years at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum from 2021-23, and at the Nobska Light and Museum in 2023.

His photography can be seen at OverCapeCod.com, which is an aerial gallery of the Cape & the Islands. It has been a resource for art, commerce, and environmental groups since 2014. It has been a surprising journey of transformation from photographer to environmentalist – an endeavor to raise awareness of how vulnerable the Cape is to human and natural forces. Proceeds from the site go toward preservation of lighthouses on the Cape & the Islands. All aerials are taken from a plane.
