Staying true to his Irish roots, President-Elect Joe Biden has invited Louth violinist Patricia Treacy to perform at his inauguration ceremony next year.
Already well-acquainted, the talented Irish violinist has performed for Biden on a number of occasions including once for him and his guests at a St Patrick's Day party at his official residence.
Receiving an official invitation from Mr Biden yesterday, Patricia told The Independent that she is over the moon to be given such an opportunity. "I feel both honoured and privileged and obviously super excited."
"It always brings me a great sense of pride to be able to represent Ireland. My first thought was to share the news with my mother, who I owe my talent to, as she was my inspiration with an amazing singing voice and musical talents of her own.”
It's also believed that the soon to be president has invited Irish band The Chieftains to perform as well. A lifelong fan of the group, the Irish Mail on Sunday reports that Biden has extended a provisional invitation to the legendary Dublin band so it sounds like it will be a thoroughly Irish affair altogether.
