Posted: Friday, March 3, 2017

Looking for a night of great Irish music, Irish food and fellowship for St. Paddy’s Day this year? The LaFontaine Arts Council and the 1014 Club certainly hope that’s the case. They are partnering to sponsor a great St. Paddy’s Celebration at the Knights of Columbus on St. Patrick’s Day on Friday, March 17.

Doors open at the Knights of Columbus, located at 2817 Theater Avenue, at 5 p.m. Dinner is served from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. A selection of Irish food items will be available for purchase along with a cash bar.

The Irish band Soltré will play from 6 to 8 p.m. They are a group of talented multi-instrumentalists and singers that have a common love for folk music in the Irish and American traditions. These lads will have your hands clapping and your feet tapping to the beat of the Irish tunes. Band members include: Sean Ellsworth-Hoffman: vocals, fiddle, guitar; Rick Willey: vocals, mandolin, fiddle; Eric Fiechtner: vocals, bodhran, fiddle; Adam Carter: vocals, guitar and banjo.

Additional information about the evening can be found on the LaFontaine Arts Council Facebook page. Further questions can be directed to LAC executive director Debbie Dyer at (260) 358-0055. The St. Paddy’s Day Party serves as a fundraiser for the LAC’s “Arts in Education” programming, and honors both the Irish and the German heritage of Huntington.

The Irish Band Soltré shown above will provide Irish music for the St. Paddy’s Day Event at the Knights of Columbus on Friday, March 17.
