ARKANSAS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: 'ST. PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATION'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $30-$48.

This weekend, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra offers up a helping of Ireland by way of Alabama with Mithril, a world-traveled four-piece whose traditional Celtic roots get spun into a completely different sound thanks to progressive influences, from Middle Eastern sounds to Tin Pan Alley Americana. With a load of wild Irish instruments like the bouzouki (a primitive lute/mandolin hybrid) and the bodhran (yeah, that's just a drum), the quartet joins the ASO for a slate of jigs and folk songs, even taking a musical detour for a performance of "Arkansas Traveler."

The program returns the following day at 3 p.m.
