Come Celebrate St. Patrick's Day At The Bras d'Or Lakes Inn
Great news for St. Patrick's Day lovers, February has been long to say the least but with March finally here, we now have something to celebrate. If you come from an Irish background as I do, you have probably grown up listening and enjoying Irish music and making sure that you had something green to wear on St. Patrick's Day. This year you can look forward to attending the sixth Annual St. Patrick's Day party at the Bras d'Or Lakes Inn, with lots of great music and excellent food. Here is the information on the St. Patrick's Day event as forwarded to me by Greg Silvers.
St. Patrick's Day event in St Peter's
Hello traditional music fans.
This year is our sixth to host the annual St. Patrick's Day party in St. Peter's - the biggest live traditional session of the year in these parts, featuring an acoustic jam with dozens of players, in the very amiable surroundings of the Bras d'Or Lakes Inn. As always, players, singers, dancers and listeners are welcome.
This year's celebration will be a tribute to Paul Davis, in honour of the 30th Anniversary of his weekly radio show, The Music of Ireland. After producing 1,560 hour-long shows, Paul definitely deserves to be roasted and toasted by his friends and fans.
Please join us in St. Peter's on Saturday, March 17, from 5 pm, with the meal starting at 7pm and followed with a Jam session. Tickets can be purchased in advance from Rhoda or Jean Pierre at the Bras d'Or Lakes Inn and cost $17.25 including taxes.
Chef JP Gillet has planned a very nice supper of your choice of either Corned Beef and Cabbage or Coq au vin. Reservations and advance tickets are required as this is a private function at the Inn. Seating is limited as always, so book early to avoid disappointment, and reserve a table for your party if you wish.
The attached invitation has further information on the event, meal and price.
Anyone who would like to make public remarks for Paul during the supper is encouraged. I'd appreciate hearing from any of you in advance to answer your questions and to schedule your toast or roast into the evening. My contact info
appears at the end of this message.
