The second annual St. Pat's Fancy concert is set for Saturday, April 24 at PCVS auditorium.

St. Pat's Fancy is an annual celebration of traditional Irish music, in support of The Market Hall. Returning is Cairdeas, a traditional Irish group featuring Steafan Hannigan and Saskia

Tomkins, two world-class Celtic musicians who relocated to Northumberland from the UK in 2007, states a press release.

This year, Cairdeas will feature its new singer Marsala Lukianchuk, who is well-known to local audiences for numerous musical and theatrical performances, including last summer's
production of 4th Line Theatre's The Right Road to Pontypool.

St. Pat's Fancy will take place at PCVS auditorium this year, because Market Hall is shut down for renovations, and this year's proceeds will go directly to support the renovation project that will transform the downtown landmark into one of Ontario's top medium-sized theatres, it states.

Along with Cairdeas, St. Pat's Fancy will feature some of Peterb o ro u g h's Celtic musicians including, harpist Tanah Haney, Michael Ketemer, host of the long-running Celtic Jam, Glen Caradus, storyteller Mark Finnan and Carried Away, hosts of the popular In From the Cold Christmas concert.

The concert begins at 8 p.m. at the PCVS auditorium Tickets are $15 at Titles Bookstore. For more information call John Hoffman at 748-2126
