Station on the Green is throwing a St. Patrick’s Day party with live music by Shipyard Kitchen Party and Strange Potatoes.
Strange Potatoes is a trio of multi- talented Georgian Triangle musicians – Derek McLean, John Eaton and John Miller. Inspired by Celtic roots, this energetic band of musical characters promises to get people up on the dance floor.
Shipyard Kitchen Party features John Eaton (guitar, bass, mandolin, vocals), Sacha Law (bass, vocals) and Jason Murphy (bodhran, vocals).
With roots in Scotland, Newfoundland and Georgian Bay, Shipyard Kitchen Party blends traditional instrumentation with humour, artistry and history to tell Canadian stories in original ways. They say, “We’re Great Big Sea, having a dram too many with Stan Rogers. We’re Gordon Lightfoot meets Whose Line is it Anyway? We’ll make you stomp your feet and we might also make you cry.”
The event is a fundraiser for the Station on the Green, Creemore’s volunteer-run community centre. Facility manager Debbie Hill said the management board is looking ahead to costly upgrades to the kitchen and the washrooms, as well as replacing the blinds. Rental fees cover the regular maintenance costs associated with the facility but fundraising is necessary to pay for upgrades.
The St. Patrick’s Day party starts at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 17. Tickets cost $35 per person before Jan. 23, and $40 after. Tickets are available online at www.ticketscene.ca/events/43490.
Food will be available to purchase from Chez Michel and LaCucina.
This is 19+ event with a cash bar.
