Mulligan said: “It’s great to be working with the American Irish Historical Society and keeping the Irish Arts alive after St. Patrick’s Day with such an awesome lineup of Irish musicians.”

AIHS’s Sophie Colgan said the venue was “delighted” to be hosting its first Craic event.

County Wicklow native Lee is a singer, songwriter, producer and actress. Now based in London, she studied dance for 13 years at Performing Arts College in Dublin. Her songwriting credits include the theme tune, “If I Burn, You Burn Too,” for the Galway-set international hit series “Jack Taylor,” starring Iain Glen, while her acting credits include “The Fall,” the BBC drama starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan.

Following a performance at the International Music Industry Awards in Los Angeles Lee was signed by BMG Publishing.

Geary, a Dubliner closely identified with New York, has been touring Europe promoting his latest album “The Fool,” which will feature in his set closing Friday night’s show.

Doors will open at 991 Fifth Ave., (80th Street), Manhattan at 6 p.m. for a Bushmills Irish Whiskey tasting.
