Museum to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with The Baltimore Consort America's Shrine to Music Museum on the campus of The University of South Dakota, Vermillion, will celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a special performance, "The Mad Buckgoat: Ancient Music of Ireland," by The Baltimore Consort, Sunday, March 17, at 2:30 p.m. in the museum's Arne B. Larson Concert Hall.
Featuring traditional Irish tunes and ballads rooted in the 18th and 19th centuries, the five virtuoso instrumentalists � who play flute, lute, viol, early guitar, cittern, rebec, recorder, crumhorn, and bandora � will be joined by Custer LaRue, called "a bewitching soprano" by Scotland's national newspaper, The Scotsman.
Together since 1980, the ensemble has delighted audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and earned recognition as Top Classical Crossover Artist by Billboard magazine.
In order to guarantee the intimacy of the performance, as one might encounter it in an Irish pub, seating will be limited, with tickets sold on a first come, first serve basis. Irish delicacies will be served at intermission.
Tickets are $15. Call 605-677-5306 (Visa, MasterCard).
