St. Patrick's Day in Las Cruces

If you're looking for a fun and unique way to celebrate this Irish holiday, visit the Rio Grande Theatre where Irish fiddler Paddy Jones will perform.

Jones is a traditional Kerry style fiddler from Country Kerry. He studdied under Sliabh Luchara fiddlers and is a living connection to Ireland's past when music and books were the center of culture.

The combination of spiritual quest / fiddling quest is what makes him such a compelling storyteller and fiddler. His only source of income for the last decade is his summer gigs and his once-a-week teaching schedule.

Jones is a highly sought-after dance fiddler, both in County Kerry and internationally. Don't go looking on Amazon for his latest CD, though: you'll come up empty. Jones refuses to record or to promote himself - he's a reclusive cult figure who disdains commercialism. His performances are punctuated with timeless Irish poetry, some of which Jones will recite in the native Irish (sometimes called Gaelic) language.

Tickets are $10 at riograndetheater.com and the show begins at 7 p.m.

Other St. Patrick's Day Events:

Mark Hummel and the Blues Survivors will perform from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Sparkys in Hatch. Hummel, who has recorded more than 15 albums, has crafted his own trademark harmonica sound - a subtle combination of tone, phrasing and attack, combined with a strong sense of swing. Hummel has achieved wide recognition through nearly constant touring and appearances at the major blues festivals. Dinner and show is $25 per person. Seating is limited. Call (575) 267-4222 for tickets.

The Pint Scoundrels will perform traditional Irish music from 5 to 7 p.m. at De La Vega's.

Horseshoe Hand Grenade, Sweetest Downfall, Crooked Beaver Creek and Daniel Park will be on stage from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Dublin's Street Pub.

The Liars and The Brothers Sullivan All-Star Review at 9 p.m. at Hurricane Alley.
