MOIRA Nelligan and the Dixie Jigs showcase Georgia-born, Irish-descended Nelligan’s proud roots and her ability to fuse traditions and take them into new, exciting territories. Be it Georgia sea island folk songs, gypsy-inflected numbers, or jig-driven tunes with an Irish bend, the band seems to be the perfect act to lead us into St. Patrick’s Day.

The fiddle-wielding Nelligan is a former Savannah resident with her roots now planted in Decatur. She plays alongside son Mickey Nelligan, a talented Irish guitarist, fiddler, and blues harmonica player (he also plays with his siblings in string band The Stone Mountain Wobblers) and mandolinist George Norman.

Saturday, March 7, 8 p.m. $10 suggested donation.
