Colcannon in Concert
Sunday, March 17
Sturgis Community Center Theater

Colcannon is returning to Sturgis to bring Ireland to us on St. Patty's Day! They will present a concert on Sunday, March 17th, at 2:00pm in the Sturgis Community Center Theater. Admission is $15 at the door (cash or check only). Who knows? Green beer may be part of the afternoon (our leprechauns are working on making that happen). Happy St Patrick's Day!

Colcannon .....Authentic, Joyous Irish Music.... traditional with a touch of chamber music and music hall, they play Irish music with panache, warmth and wit. Timeless songs and great musicianship transport audiences to another time and place. Colcannon has developed a distinctive, inventive, and contemporary musical style while still keeping in firm touch with the heart and essence of traditional Irish music. Colcannon's concerts are renowned for their energy, for singer/frontman Mick Bolger's irrepressible sense of humor and sly wit, and, of course, for the music; music that expresses flights of joy, deep sorrows, and an unquenchable zest for life.

Colcannon's appeal crosses lines of age, gender and ethnic background. For while the musical focus is on the beautiful wealth of traditional Irish music - all acoustic instrumentation, traditional as well as original tunes and songs, with some of the songs in Mick's native Irish language - Colcannon's true message is the story of the resilient and joyous human spirit.
