If your wanting to feel the luck o' the Irish, this Heartland event may be just the thing for you (please imagine the last sentence in an Irish accent)!

The opening concert will take place at the Varsity Center for the Arts on Friday, followed by an outdoor Celtic Fair Saturday and Sunday at Walker's Bluff Winery just north of Carbondale.
