The 69th Pennsylvania Irish Volunteers, featuring our own Dr. Levine, makes their 17th consecutive appearance at Lansdale’s Sumney Tavern next month. The band brings their lively creativity to the tavern on Saturday, March 26th starting at 7 pm. They’ll treat the anticipated full crowd to a joyful performance of Irish music, complete with instruments like tin whistle, banjo, guitars, mandolin, harmonica and fiddle.
The Sumney Tavern, “an American bistro with an Irish Accent,” is a happening spot located at 1610 West Point Pike in Lansdale, PA. The tavern is open every day and serves lunch and dinner until 10:00 pm.
Dr. Levine reminds friends to call the tavern (215-699-5693) in advance to reserve a table. “We pack the place!”
More about the 69th Pennsylvania Irish Volunteers:
The 69th Pennsylvania Irish Volunteers Band and reenactment group have donated much time and energy for historic battlefield preservation, placing close to 100 tombstones for soldiers in the regiment who never had one. The band has raised over $100,000 since their first 1999 performance at Philadelphia’s historic Masonic Temple. Dr. Levine’s regiment is also the largest reenactment and hobby group donor within the Civil War Trust when it comes to preserving battlefields.
The group was honored to perform in April 2015 at the historic McLean House in the village of Appomattox Courthouse, where General Lee officially surrendered to General Grant on April 9, 1865, thereby ending the Civil War. The band’s two music CDs of 19 songs each are for sale (Rock of Erin 2002; In Their Honor 2006) with all proceeds going to the above-mentioned projects. CDs can be purchased at the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Implants and Periodontics office or by calling us at 215-677-8686. You can also order CDs at www.pa69irish.com. Prices are $19.95 for either CD which includes shipping and handling.
