Our very own St. Patrick's Day Celebration featuring live traditional Irish folk music. There will be plenty of drink specials and festive merriment! Green Flag is an Athens-based folk-music ensemble that stays close to the heart of traditional Irish music. These musicians, sharing a love of Irish Music and Dance, joined forces to become Green Flag Irish Band. The band features fiddle, accordion, guitar, vocals, mandolin, and hammered dulcimer. You'll tap your feet and raise your pint as The Ballybeg Band plays sizzling jigs and reels. You'll laugh and cry as you sing along with favourite Irish pub songs about drinking, the pain of emigration, fond memories of the auld sod (and let's not forget drinking!). The Ballybeg Band features singing by band members, plaintive uilleann pipes and whistles, scintillating percussion including bodhran and djembe, innovative guitar, and smoking, soulful or improvisatory fiddling and haunting songs.
