SWITCHBACK to Play Theatre at the Center, 3/16
Back by popular demand, Theatre at the Center, 1040 Ridge Road, Munster, Indiana, will once again treat audiences to an old-fashioned St. Patrick's Day celebration with the award-winning Irish duo, SWITCHBACK, on Sunday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. Coupled with a traditional Irish dinner preceding the performance, the night is sure to have everyone feeling the luck of the Irish this year.
American roots blended with Celtic soul, the musical partnership of Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack, known as SWITCHBACK, has achieved commercial success for over two decades. The duo recently released their fifteenth album, "Kanoka," continuing their career-long interest in roots and American music.
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 gifted songwriters and performers have 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 Cream of Broccoli Soup, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Red Potatoes, Rye Bread, Irish Soda Bread and Irish Whiskey Cake. A cash bar will also be available.
