What better way to toast St. Patrick’s Day than with the band The Irish Times calls “a spirit-raising concoction”? Celebrate the day of the year when everyone is a little Irish with one of Ireland’s most acclaimed traditional music ensembles. For two decades, this band hailing from County Waterford has been entertaining audiences internationally with its breathtaking vocals in Irish and English and virtuoso performances on traditional Celtic instruments. Irish Music Magazine rightly praises that Danú “stirs the blood and lifts the heart.” Beer tastings take place beforehand in the Corin Courtyard from 6pm - 7pm. Free admission (21 and over) with ticket to Danú.
