If you’re looking for a way to get out during the tail end of winter, we’ve got the perfect idea. This weekend, March 7-10, is the upcoming Durango Celtic Festival. Four days of Celtic music and events offer a reason to celebrate St. Patty’s day early. Two venues host workshops and performances: The Henry Strater Theatre and Irish Embassy and Pub (fun fact—every piece of furniture, picture, and piece of glass inside the pub is directly from Ireland!).
Several workshops are available over the weekend; many geared toward the intermediate/advanced level. Topics include: guitar, songwriting, dance, Irish Fiddle, Mandolin, and so much more. Beginners are encouraged to attend or audit the workshops.
One of the headlining acts this year is SuperTrad, a trio of musicians who visited the Celtic Festival in the past, and had requests for a return. There will also be performances from THE JEREMIAHS, The Kitchen Jam Band, Dave Curley, The Hydes, and more.
As we often mention, we love that Durango offers a variety of events and activities, and this is no exception. It’s excellent for the town to offer such culture and ways to enjoy our community. Take a look at the website for details and ticket info: http://www.durangocelticfestival.com/
