Cead Mile Failte - Dublin St moves to Cathedral Square
12 noon to 2pm, Friday 16 March
To kick off Christchurch's St Patrick's Day revelry, one of Christchurch's leading Irish Bands Dublin St will feature in a two-hour celebration of Irish culture in Cathedral Square on Friday 16 February.
The four-piece band Dublin St was formed six months ago and consists of Jeremy Brownbrooke on vocals, fiddle and mandolin, Russell Gillies on vocals and bass guitar, Willie McArthur on vocals and guitar, and Jonathon Tressler on drums. Regular performers at Bailies bar, 'Dublin St's' unique mix of hard driving Celtic Rock, combined with Irish and Scottish ballads, and American bluegrass has made them popular with the local Irish community.
Alongside Dublin St, three of Christchurch's leading Irish dance schools will be performing; the Kay-Hallissey School of Dance, The Gaelic Dancers, and the Dermott Pratt School of Dance.
If you enjoy the music of the Pogues, the Waterboys, the Proclaimers, and the Sawdoctors, coupled with the chance to view Christchurch's future Irish dance stars, get along to Cathedral Square, and kick off your St Patrick's day celebrations in style.
