Shameless Folk is coming back!

Are you thinking that you don’t have anything planned to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Think again! The Carberry Plains Museum Board is bringing back that Celtic group that entertained us last February – the Shameless Folk! They will be set to entertain from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on March 17.
Once again, the Royal Canadian Legion on Main Street will be the venue for this event. The Shameless Folk will bring a mixture of Irish, Celtic, and even some Scottish for your entertainment. We saw them perform last year, and it is amazing to see just how many instruments the three of them play! 
The music was accom­panied by banter – with each other and occasionally with the audience. Bill Turner, the ‘local’ member of the group (a Well­donian!) is well-known as the morning show host at CKLQ for many years and has quite the repertoire of humorous stories.
There will be refreshments – Irish-themed goodies, along with your choice of beverage: tea, coffee, or something that the Legion offers. 
And – to get into the theme of things – WEAR GREEN! There just might be a prize for the ‘greenest outfit!’
Proceeds will go towards the renovations on the Gingerbread House porch. This has been an expensive pro­position, as the repairs have to be done to historic resources specifications. For too many years the ceiling on the verandah has been open and consequently the birds have found it to be a great nesting place. We hope to get this problem tackled before the birds set up house again! As well, there are decorative pieces missing that have to be constructed individually too match what was there originally. 
The Carberry and area has been so supportive of the efforts of the Carberry Plains Museum Board in the past, and for $15.00 you are guaranteed an afternoon that will satisfy your Irish longings and fill your tummy as well! Hope to see you there!
Tickets are available from museum board mem­bers or can be purchased at the Carberry News-Express. Thank you!
