St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, is a national holiday in Ireland, so the Irish are delighted that it falls on a Monday this year. That is not so good for Canadians wanting to celebrate Paddy’s Day, so Celtic Cargo Cult invite you to join us on Saturday or Sunday for St. Patrick’s Weekend! (If all goes to plan, next year we might suggest St. Patrick’s week). You can catch David Somers and Celtic Cargo Cult at Zocalo Café this Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. There is no cover charge. On the corner of Cliffe Avenue and Fifth Street in Courtenay, Zocalo provides an ideal intimate setting in which to enjoy the band’s original music and arrangements of traditional and contemporary Irish songs. In addition to its mouth-watering desserts and coffees, it also has a licensed dining menu with beer, wine and liqueurs. An Irish pub night in a familyfriendly setting! The weekend continues with a 2 to 6 p.m. show at the Comox Legion on Sunday, March 16. An Irish pub afternoon in a grownup friendly setting. The band consists of singer/songwriter David Somers (guitar/ vocals), David Hext (bass/vocals), Chris Manuel (lead guitar) and “Bootless” Bob Henderson (drums). Celtic Cargo Cult brings a fresh feel and a distinctive sound to old world music. From ballads to high-energy Celtic rock, their shows will stir your soul and move your feet. — Celtic Cargo Cult
