CHILLICOTHE'S MOST ANTICIPATED FUNDRAISER OF THE YEAR! 2018 will see the return of the General Guinness Band! From a tour of the Soviet Union in 1990 to eighteen shows at Dollywood’s Valley Theater in the heart of Tennessee, the General Guinness Band has performed the music of Ireland for over 35 years. Hundreds of concert programs and festivals, numerous television and radio programs, and even a guest appearance with the Chieftains have allowed the band to share their music far and wide.
The band combines songs collected by vocalist and Kilkenny, Ireland native James O’Shea with energetic fiddle tunes, four part harmonies, and Irish step dancing. The band’s richly told stories-in-song also incorporate humor and provide insight into the charming lore and myth of the Irish. Traditional through and through. Repertoire heard nowhere else.
In addition to the world class entertainment, this event features food, drink, a large silent auction, dancing and more. It's a fundraiser...but it's a party first and foremost. This event sells out every year, so get your tickets early.

Shakespeare’s comic romance is set amidst the high spirits of a post-war house party. Don Pedro, Claudio, Benedick and all their troops, recently returned from deployment in Afghanistan, are able to relax and enjoy the company and hospitality of their friend Leonato, his daughter Hero and niece Beatrice. Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio. Nothing seems capable of tearing them apart. Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, although neither will admit it. Nothing seems capable of bringing them together. However, these warring rivals forge a partnership in order to defend truth and honor, and salvage the true love of Hero and Claudio after deceptions wreck the lovers’ wedding day. This is a different kind of battlefield altogether. Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being unacknowledged, and played out with an explosion of schemes, strategies and antics Much Ado About Nothing is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense and gives us, in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, two of Shakespeare’s wittiest, most lovable pair of lovers. Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s most frequently produced plays around the world and has inspired at least 5 widely differing film adaptations including award-winners by Sir Kenneth Branagh (1993) and Joss Whedon (2011). Shakespeare on Sugarloaf is a major initiative of The Scioto Society, Inc. to provide free Shakespeare to Southern Ohio. ALSO: Join us for Sack It With Shakespeare at the Chillicothe Public Library North Branch on July 28 from 11-1 for a FREE discussion over lunch. This event takes place at the Chillicothe Public Library Northside Branch lunch pavilion. Conversation moderated by Lance Mekeel from Ohio University Chillicothe. Bring your lunch with you!!
