The Great North Woods Committee for the Arts will be hosting this lively St. Patrick’s Day gathering Islay Mist Ceilidh is a group of musicians from all over northern New Hampshire who first started out playing Celtic music for fun. That fun has grown to include numerous gigs at various venues and events; the band plays several times a year at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center Inn in Crawford Notch, the Lancaster Fair and for the past two years has been among the headliners at the annual First Night New Year’s Eve celebration in St. Johnsbury, Vt.
Islay Mist Ceilidh includes fiddlers, guitarists, twin bodhrans, flutes, penny whistle and cellos. The group recently recorded its first CD, which will be available for purchase at the show.
Come on and join the fun and don’t forget to wear your green—and sing along to some old Irish favorites, including “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” “Danny Boy” and “Irish Lullaby.” Whether you’re of Irish heritage or just Irish for the day, you’ll have a great time–and that’s no blarney.
Tickets for the St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the Colebrook Country Club on Rte. 26 in Colebrook are available in advance at Fiddleheads, 110 Main St., Colebrook, or at the door on the night of the show. General admission prices for the night are: adults, $15; students, $12; children under 12, $5.
