Luck of the Irish Night is March 16 in Phillips

PHILLIPS - A fun-filled evening of Irish delight awaits at Luck of the Irish Night in Phillips on Saturday, March 16.

Geared towards families and those who enjoy a good time, the evening begins at 5 p.m. with an Irish potluck supper. Bring a dish to share, and get $5 off the admission fee of $15 for supper and show. Think corned beef and cabbage, Irish stew, shepherd’s pie, and lots of potatoes and greens.

An auction of scratch tickets will take place throughout the evening, so bring your lucky charms and keep your fingers crossed. Supper will be followed by Martin Swinger, singer and guitarist, with rousing musical entertainment to guarantee a smile.

Martin Swinger’s songs span Alzheimer’s, Autism, oysters, dyslexic theology and the lively adventures of Betty Boop and Buddha – lyrically and melodically illustrating the variety of human emotions in powerful story-songs. Surprising, humorous, intimate, outrageous, universal - each song sung with the skill and panache of a seasoned performer.

Martin is an atypical 60-something singer/songwriter celebrated for his fluid voice and engaging personality. With many albums, local and national songwriting awards, Martin is a repeat performer at Kerrville Folk Festival and counts among his fans Pete Seeger, Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey, Billy Jonas, Ezra Idlet, Vance Gilbert and John Waters.

The wearin’ of the green is strongly encouraged. Phillips Area Community Center, 21 Depot St., Phillips. For more information, call Winona at 639-4296 or Pam at 639-2630, or visit our website at www.phillipspacc.org.
