OLD SAYBROOK - The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, “the Kate”, will feature a performance by RUNA, "one of Irish music’s new 'super groups''” at 8 p.m. March 2, according to a release.

"Founded by vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan and her husband, Dublin-born guitarist, Fionán de Barra, RUNA has been enchanting audiences by pushing the boundaries of Irish folk music into the Americana and roots music formats since 2008. Interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of jazz, bluegrass, flamenco and blues, they offer a thrilling and redefining take on traditional music," the release said.
For information and tickets for all shows at the Kate, visit or call 877-503-1286.

About the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center
The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center is a non-profit performing arts organization located in an historic theatre/town hall on Main Street in Old Saybrook. Originally opened in 1911 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Center has been renovated with public funds from the Town of Old Saybrook and donations raised by the Trustees of the Center. It includes a 250-seat theatre and a small museum honoring Katharine Hepburn, Old Saybrook’s most celebrated resident. As befits an organization born of such a public/private partnership, programming is eclectic, offering something for all ages and income levels on the Connecticut shore and in the lower river valley.
