Irish Girls and Boys Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day REGIONAL – Listening to the young women of Girsa sing about the hopes and dreams of Irish immigrants as they arrived at America, it is hard to keep a dry eye. Texas songwriter Guy Clark’s Immigrant Eyes, which Girsa recorded at Ellis Island, is just one of the songs the all-women group will perform Saturday night in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day at the Belleville Congregational Church’s Roots Concert. “I love their music,” said Ken Irwin, a founder of Rounder Records and one of the founders of the Belleville concert series. “They bring a knowledge and appreciation of the traditional

BYFIELD – Kevin Sicard is already missed. As the Theater Workshop prepares for its spring play Good Fortune at Newbury Elementary School, his death of heart failure has left a hole in the crew. “Kevin had a presence that was upbeat and fun and cheerful. He was always willing to help,” said Stacey April Fix, owner of Theater Workshop. She described him as a positive role model, not just to his three children, who are in the play, but for the entire cast and crew. A special benefit performance in honor of Sicard will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 21. Proceeds from the show and any donations Continued on page 3
