Celebrate St. Pat’s at Colby-Curtis
There will be a celebration of all things Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, in the solarium of the Colby Curtis Museum. “The volunteers have really gotten enthusiastic about this new activity, an Irish Tea. They’ll be making desserts, putting up St. Patrick’s Day decorations and helping during the event,” said Chloe Southam, the museum’s Director and Curator.
The festivities will include an Irish-themed feast of broccoli soup, leek and potato soup, many varieties of fancy sandwiches, scones and a variety of homemade desserts. “What’s fun is that we were able to get the alcohol permit so we’ll be able to serve red and white wine and Irish coffee,” said Ms. Southam.
St. Patrick’s Day wouldn’t be the same without Irish music so the popular band Maivish will be keeping things lively with their songs, inspired by the musical traditions of Ireland and the British Isles. The band is made up of American fiddler Jaige Trudel and British born guitarist Adam Broome.
During the Irish Tea, the museum’s boutique will be open and visitors can visit the permanent exhibition. Anyone who would like to attend the Colby-Curtis Museum’s first Irish Tea must reserve their places by March 16th by calling the museum at 819 876-7322.
