IMDA and Landmark Center present a special Irish edition of Music From the Porch from Landmark Center’s Market Street entry “porch” on Sunday, March 14 at 2:00 p.m. This concert is like the series of concerts presented last summer. They are free and open to the public. Guests are invited to bring a lawn chair, and enjoy the opportunity to hear live music. The outdoor concert will still observe COVID-19 protocols (masks, social distancing), and will be live-streamed for those unable to attend in person. Visit the Landmark Center or IMDA website in the event of inclement weather for concert location info.
This is the only in-person element of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Irish Celebration at Landmark Center. The concert features the inimitable Todd Menton performing from Landmark Center’s Market Street porch.
Todd Menton is a multi-instrumentalist and the lead singer in Boiled in Lead, a Twin Cities-based punk/folk/world-music band. He is also a solo recording artist for New Folk Records. His music is a combination of original and traditional Irish tunes and songs, rendered in a unique, edgy style. The bodhrán and mandolin are featured prominently on his recordings, and are his two favorite instruments. Menton teaches bodhrán (Irish drum), mandolin and pub songs with the Center for Irish Music in St. Paul, and is a regular favorite performer in the local pubs.
The Irish Music and Dance Association is a 501(c)(3) organization.
