Munster, IN- Due to popular demand, Theatre at the Center will once again treat audiences to an old-fashioned St. Patrick’s Day celebration with the award-winning Irish duo, SWITCHBACK. Traditional Irish dishes and a unique Irish Beer & Wine Tasting event will precede the performance from 5:30 until 7 p.m. The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. at 1040 Ridge Road, Munster, Indiana.

For more than two decades, the musical partnership of Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack, known as SWITCHBACK, has achieved commercial success without forgetting their Irish roots. The duo originated when chosen by legendary County Kerry composer and concertina master Terrence ‘Cuz’ Teahan to join his traditional Irish group. FitzGerald and McCormack were taught the old country techniques of Irish musical entertainment, making them one of the last generations to be directly influenced by a master of this musical genre.

The duo has shared the stage with such notable Celtic musicians as Cherish the Ladies, Gaelic Storm, Liz Carroll, and John Williams. They annually tour Ireland and wherever they play, Switchback always captivates and charms folks with their energy and creativity.

The dinner portion of the evening will include customary Irish favorites such as Corned Beef & Cabbage, Red Potatoes, Carrots, Rye Bread, Irish Soda Bread, and Irish Whiskey Cake. Irish beers and wine will round out the menu.
