St. Patrick’s Day & Celtic Woman

 

Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast is pleased to announce that on Saturday March 14, Downtown Missoula is featuring their own St. Patrick’s Day parade starting at noon on South Higgins Street in Missoula, MT.  Dr. Dan Combo is this year’s Grand Marshall and Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Thane are Irishman and woman of the year. We encourage you all to attend as we honour these great Irish people.

On North Higgins, we recommend visiting the Iron Horse Bar and Grill in Missoula.  In addition to their homemade brews, their menu features a wide variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and entrees.  This is the perfect place to be refreshed after seeing the Missoula’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  Their daily happy hour is from 5 to 7 pm.

 

Speaking of Irish happiness, this June, enjoy hearing angelic Irish music and seeing entertaining dance when the all-female Irish musical ensemble, Celtic Woman, perform live in the Adams Center on University of Montana’s Missoula campus.  This is their 10th Anniversary World Tour.  While the group’s performers have changed over the years, cumulatively, albums by Celtic Woman have sold over six million records worldwide.

This talented group of ladies have been described as “Riverdance for the voice.”  Don’t miss the inspiring performances of this timeless music complete with bagpipers, dancers, a full band and choir in an exceptional concert.

This brand new stage production celebrates the Emerald Isles’ spellbinding Celtic heritage through an extraordinary presentation of traditional Irish anthems, pop standards and original music by Emmy-nominated music producer, David Downes. The Emerald Tour showcases performances of favorites from the group’s treasure chest of songs including “Danny Boy,” “Amazing Grace” and “You Raise Me Up.”  These musical ladies perform live in concert on Friday June 12 at 8 pm.

Any day of the year, Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast in Missoula welcomes guests.  Friendly innkeepers Brady and Elaine will help you feel right at home.  With the majestic Montana mountain views, luxurious amenities, and homemade gourmet breakfasts, guests always leave with smiles on their faces.
