Don't miss the Irish Breakfast Band's St. Patrick's Day concert on Friday, March 17 at Emma's Espresso and Wine Bar from 7pm to 9pm.
The Irish Breakfast Band is a diverse group of DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland residents who meet Saturday mornings for a potluck breakfast. After breakfast is a rehearsal of its repertoire of Celtic tunes. These Saturday meetings are usually held at a different house each week, with attendance often exceeding a dozen musicians, though rarely the exact same set two weeks in a row.
Most performances feature 8-12 musicians, often several fiddles and flutes, a guitar or two, a drummer, a hammered dulcimer, banjo and at least one vocalist. A child-friendly band, the group often brings extra percussion instruments to give young audience members a chance to participate.
