ST. PATRICK’S DAY AUSTIN MUSIC
Traditional Irish music is one of the greatest sources of pride for the Irish people. No one could be sincere about offering a St. Patrick’s Day celebration without it. The CCC is extremely honored to be hosting Teada with Brian Cunningham of Atlantic Steps and Seamus Begley. Téada, now firmly established as one of Irish music’s leading exponents on the international world music stage, continues to be driven by a fascination with the timeless, expressive force of traditional tunes inherited from previous generations of musicians.

THE ST. PATRICK’S DAY AUSTIN FILM PRESENTATION: GROWIN’ A BEARD (Cover 3 location only)
In this documentary, director Michael Woolf sojourns to this tiny Texan hamlet and grabs the skinny on one of the more unusual community customs: the annual St. Patrick’s Day Donegal beard-growing contest. Since 1938, each March 17th in Shamrock, Texas (population 2,029) has been the home of the St. Patrick’s Day Festival and, more importantly, the Donegal beard-growing contest. The Donegal is a rare cut of beard that borders the jawline and runs back up into the sideburns. No mustache. No neck whiskers. Think Lincoln or Amish. Think Leprechauns. From New Year’s Day to St. Paddy’s, contestants-to-be grow their best Donegals and have them judged on the day of the parade. The festivities are presided over by the “Chief Fuzzer,” the head beard man in charge, who is allowed to throw any clean-shaven man into a makeshift jail if he’s caught without a special permit excusing him from sporting whiskers. Mike Woolf’s documentary celebrates along with the locals. The score is provided by The Gourds.
