Colcannon in Concert
Irish music on St Patrick’s Day…?? How perfect is that?!?!?
On Sunday, March 17th, Colcannon once again returns to Sturgis to present a warm and engaging
concert experience through the vibrant tradition of Irish music. The concert will be held at 2:00pm in
the Sturgis Community Center Theater, located at 1401 Lazelle St, in Sturgis
A quote says, “We started the evening as strangers and ended up great friends. Those who weren’t
aficionados of Irish music when they arrived must surely have been so by evening’s end. Vocalist Mick
Bolger sprinkled the group’s performance with huge dollops of Irish wisdom and deprecating humor. A
great storyteller with a flyaway mane of white hair, Bolger introduced many of the band’s numbers
with background information or jokes, eliciting laughter and hoots from audience members. From
toe-tapping dance tunes to plaintive ballads to humorous ditties, the band offered a full range of Celtic
music that lifted the spirits and happily heated up an already warm night. From dirge-like minor keys to
lilting and cheerful melodic lines, the music expressed the whole gamut of emotions both
instrumentally and vocally.” (The Redland CA Herald)
Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door. Who knows? Green beer may be part of the afternoon
(our leprechauns are working on making that happen). Happy St Patrick’s Day!
