St. Paddy’s is upon us!

Plenty of opportunities to catch some Irish music over the next several days! First, we’ll see you on Friday at 2 Dogs Pub. I recommend the black bean burger with teriyaki green beans. We’ll start playing at 8.

Then on Saturday, we’re thrilled to be opening for Dervish at the Englert.

Sunday is a day of kitchen wizardry because on Monday, St. Patrick’s Day, we’re having a potluck and music event at Uptown Bill’s called ‘Ireland to Iowa; A Living Tradition‘. The potluck begins at 6 pm. I am bringing Guinness stew (one traditional and one vegan) and soda bread (one traditional and one gluten-free). There will then be a performance at 7 pm and a session beginning at 8 pm.

The plan for the 7 pm concert is to feature original compositions written in Iowa in the Irish tradition. The concert portion of the evening will feature compositions by me, my bandmates Brad Pouleson and Keith Reins, our friends Dave Hicks, Dennis Roseman, and Guy Drollinger and more and the session following the concert is open to all.

We hope to see some friendly faces as we celebrate our eleventh St. Paddiversary with the Beggarmen!

  1. Hi – I am a bluegrass fiddler. I would like to join in your irish jam sometime. But, need to learn some tunes from the genre. Do you happen to have a list of tunes played at your jam and the key? Maybe just a few so I could join in someday…
    Thanks! Dan
