St. Patrick's Day roundup

Posted By on Fri, Mar 16, 2012 at 10:22 AM


There's more than one way to pinch a leprechaun, and that's never been truer than this St. Patrick's Day season, which is jam-packed with traditional music and dance, green beer and other Irish-themed shenanigans.

The St. Patrick's Day parade begins at 1 p.m. at the corner of Fourth and Rock streets in Little Rock and winds its way to North Little Rock via the Main Street Bridge, ending at Sixth and Main Streets. "Dancing at the Crossroads" starts at about 2 p.m. on the Grand Stand Stage at Fourth and Main in North Little Rock. There will also be musical performances from the two marching bagpipe bands and traditional Irish dance performances from the McCafferty School of Irish Dance and the O'Donovan School of Irish Dance.

Denton's Trotline rings in St. Patrick's Day with a big party featuring Tragikly White, starting at 9:30 p.m.

Over at The Afterthought they're celebrating St. Patrick's Day with funk, soul, R&B and jazz from The William Staggers Trio at 9 p.m., $7.

It's gonna be a St. Paddy's Music Extravaganza at The Ford Theater in Conway, featuring Joey Farr & The Fuggins Wheat Band (they were in our showcase recently and they shred), Ol' Puddin'haid and It's About Time. It starts at 6 p.m.

There's a St. Patrick's Day block party starting at 4 p.m. over at Dugan's Pub, with live music from Peg Roach Loyd, Scott Moye, James Peeples, The Dead Celts Society and Penguin Dilemma and dance performances from the McCafferty and O’Donovan Schools of Irish Dance.

Out at the Promenade at Chenal, you can celebrate a different sort of green with "Recycle. Educate. Donate." They're taking donations of old clothing and offering education about recycling and waste reduction. It starts at 10 a.m. and it's free.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
