St. Pat arrives early in Unity

"UNITY — Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., will present a pre-St. Patrick's Day concert by McPeake Monday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m.

For generations of folk music enthusiasts, the name of the McPeake Family of Belfast, Ireland, has stood for one of the most distinctive sounds in Irish music. Francis McPeake IV, the fourth generation of this world-famous musical dynasty and one of the few authentic uilleann pipers in the world today, has put together a revived band, McPeake, which offers a fusion of original Celtic compositions and contemporary rhythms and styles.

Tickets are $15. Next up at Unity College Centre will be Prince Edward Island fiddler Richard Wood Thursday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. ($20). For more information, call 948-7469 or visit"
