The Prairie Center welcomes Switchback St. Paddy's Day Concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 17.

The award-winning duo Switchback, featuring Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack draws on traditional Celtic music and original Americana songs that reflect their Irish heritage and Midwestern roots. Playing an exciting mix of mandolin, guitar and bass, their harmonies have won them comparisons to famous duos, such as the Louvin Brothers, the Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel.

Music Connection Magazine says "The words 'American Roots & Celtic Soul' only begin to describe this unusual act, whose vocal prowess is as pure as it is unique. There is no denying the stunning vocal blends that are achieved by this duo."

The program will also feature Celtic dancers, adding to the St. Patrick's Day festivities.
