Bloedel ReserveCelebrate St. Patrick’s Day at one of the greenest places on Bainbridge Island! Andy Navage, Director of Horticulture at Bloedel Reserve, will spend two hours guiding a beautiful informational tour for locals and tourists alike. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about local foilage, this is the tine to do it! Held on St. Patrick’s Day (Tuesday, March 17th), at 10:30am.

Treehouse Cafe, located in Lynwood, is hosting Hunter’s Moon on March 17th, beginning at 4:00pm, for 21+ only. Hunter’s Moon brings together four internationally touring and recording musicians for a once-a-year multi-instrumental trans-Atlantic session. William Pint has been a prominent figure in Seattle Celtic bands since the 1970’s, when he relocated from Milwaukee. A first rate singer, guitar, bouzouki and mandolin player, he now tours the world with Vashon Island (WA) native Felicia Dale, who plays whistle, hurdy gurdy and bodhran. Mike Freeman started life in Manchester (U.K.) and now lives and tours from Kilkenny Ireland. He brings percussion of all kinds to the mix, along with guitar and mandolin. He tours with Alaska-born Tania Opland, a multi instrumentalist who lists guitar, hammered dulcimer, violin, recorders and mandolin among her armoury of instruments, and who possesses a voice of great clarity and depth.

Instrumentally superb, vocally magical, this combination is a Celtic powerhouse – it’s an Irish music party you don’t want to miss. The band has been the mainstay of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at FX McRory’s landmark Pioneer Square pub for many years, but refurbishment at the venue this year means Hunter’s Moon are on the loose!
