St. Patrick’s Day Is Fast Approaching: Get a Heads-Up On All the Upcoming Musical Celebration with the Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA)
St. Patrick’s season is just around the corner! That’s right- I did say season because in Massachusetts, which is hailed as the most Irish-American state in the entire nation, it is a long-standing tradition that this particular holiday be celebrated for a lot longer than just one day. That’s definitely good news, of course, for local Irish music fans. The best way to assure yourself that you do not miss out on any of all this upcoming action is to keep informed of concerts and other related events well ahead of time. You can do just that by visiting the web site of the Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA).
First and foremost, you definitely want to take a look at their March event calendar which lists quite a lot of the local holiday happenings taking place in the area. Musically speaking, I noticed amongst the listings several wildly popular artist’s names such as The Chieftains, The Celtic Tenors, and Riverdance, to name a few. So, buy your tickets now as some of these events are sure to sell out. You might also want to peruse their informative summary article which will give you an overall picture of the local festivities for this year.
Don’t stop at St. Patrick’s season though, because BITA’s web site is a good source of Irish music and dance event announcements no matter what time of the year it is. For instance, in the Cultural Venues section, mention is made of a few annual music/dance festivals that look to be very entertaining indeed. Under Cultural Groups you will find listings for performers, Irish music radio programs, and local cultural organizations. If it’s live music entertainment in an informal setting that you are seeking, then take a peek at the Pubs & Restaurants section. In addition to their informative press releases on various events, which can be found in the Media section of the web site, BITA also publishes their own handy little annual magazine entitled Irish Food and Culture Guide. It can be obtained for free at the tourists’ kiosks either in Copley Square (corner of Boylston and Dartmouth streets) or at the Boston Common (Tremont street side).
