The day of Padraig rapidly approacheth! It’s the one time of year we Irish musicians are in high demand, and boy do we look forward to it! This weekend is going to be non-stop fun.
On Saturday the 15th the Giant Leprechauns are performing at the Linen Building for A Celebration of Irish Culture! Here’s the press release write-up:
“Family-friendly concert celebrating St. Patrick’s Day to be held on Saturday, March 15
“The Giant Leprechauns” will be performing at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 15, at the Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St. in Downtown Boise’s Linen District. $7 per person. All ages, full bar (I.D. required), Archie’s Food Truck. Plenty of free, off-street parking is available at the Linen Building.
Idaho’s premier Irish music group presents an evening of traditional Irish music, song, and dance. The Giant Leprechauns are regulars at Curtis Steiger’s Christmas Extravaganza and performed at Maureen O’Hara’s 93rd birthday celebration last year. With Dave Daley and Rachel Sulik on fiddles, Pat Harren on flute and whistle, Tim Sommer on guitar, and Michelle Estrada singing and playing drum (bodhran), the Giant Leprechauns play the same traditional Irish jigs and reels you would hear in pubs and concerts halls in Ireland. Their superb musical talents, coupled with their drive and energy, insures a high powered evening. This is an event that should not be missed for any fan of Irish music and culture. Start your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations early with us! You’ll not be disappointed.”
A Celebration of Irish Culture
Sunday the 16th we’ll be rocking the Ha’Penny with day-before-St.-Patrick’s fun! The session is sure to be packed with fantastic musicians in another family-friendly setting. No charge to get in here, so pop in any time between 7:30 and 9:30 and enjoy some pub chips and a pint!
Lastly, on the day of St. Pat’s (Monday the 17th) join us at Humpin’ Hannah’s for the greatest craic of all! We’ll be kicking off the show from 6:00 to 8:00, and at 8:30 our friends from Irish Dance Idaho will perform some high-energy Irish dance! The Boise Highlanders will amp up the scene after the dancers and Rocci Johnson herself will close the night with her rocking band.
No cover, and a $100 bar tab will be given to the Greenest Person there. Come on down and get your green on! Or is it the other way around?
