Friday, July 13th, Dodge Nature Center
In the middle of West St. Paul, Dodge Nature Center is small jewel of greenery, birds and tranquility. The Eddies will add harmony to that mix. There is a small little amphitheater just off of Marie Ave. where we will be singing between 7:00 and 8:30. No cover, no beer available. Just the music (and ice cream for sale at the break). You may want to bring the bug dope too.
Saturday, July 14th, Mill City Farmers Market
We will make our second visit to the Mill City market on Bastille Day! We’re sure you could find some French roast coffee (and, maybe, a croissant?) to help celebrate. We will be singing from 11:00 to 1:00.
Sunday, August 12th, Irish Fair Minnesota
Once again, we will get Sunday’s fun started at the Irish Fair with an 11:00 a.m. set on the wonderfully situated River Stage. This is a great opportunity to see The Eddies actually on the river. Then, at 1:00, we will do a short set in the pub tent in between main stage acts. Finally, at 2:00 p.m., Mark and Chuck will be singing and talking about Songs of the Irish Diaspora in the workshop tent. There will be songs of the Irish in England, Australia, America and Newfoundland. There will some songs of heartsick immigrants remembering Ireland fondly. And there may be a song or two that mentions the horror that Ireland was for many people and which led them to flee.
Saturday, August 25th, St. Paul Farmers Market
On the morning of Saturday, August 25th, we will occupy a stall at St. Paul’s downtown Farmers Market (in lowertown) and sing from, around 9:00 to 11:45. There should be lots of good produce available by late August, and there is nothing better than buying from the growers themselves. Well, maybe singing in harmony is better, but you can leave that part to us.
