PENTICTON - If drinking green beer, wearing green and proudly sporting pins declaring you’re Irish and should be kissed are not enough to get you in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit, then maybe the idea of seeing Irish and Celtic music live on stage will do the trick.

Celtic Thunder will be hitting the stage at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton this November.

The group begins its LEGACY tour, a North American tour of 75 cities, in August, with a stop planned for Penticton Nov. 24. Other B.C. stops will include Abbotsford, Victoria and Prince George.

The show will feature a mix of upbeat songs such as Galway Girl and Raggle Taggle Gypsy along with the more classic ballads like Danny Boy.

Celtic Thunder was formed in 2007 and quickly became a world-wide favourite. The group is made up of five male vocalists and an eight-piece band.

Tickets for the Penticton show start at $55 and go on sale Monday, April 4, at 10 a.m.

Tickets are available in person at the Valley First Box Office (at the events centre) or Wine Country Visitor Centre, through charge by phone at 1-877-SOEC-TIX (763-2849) or by ordering online at
