Register staff report

RICHMOND — The Kentucky McTeggart Irish Dancers of Lexington performed for the Richmond Area Arts Council’s annual Irish Festival at the art center Friday night.

The husband-and-wife musical duo known as Liam's Fancy also entertained.

Guests also got to enjoy Irish stew and vote for their favorite.

Dancers, who ranged from 11 to 27 in age and from novice though champion level in talent, performed soft- and hard-shoe dancing. Teachers Maureen Hall and Allison Duvall teach the young women both traditional and modern dances.
