It's the second week in February and you know what that means – about five more weeks until St. Patrick’s Day or as I like to say, the Lent of your liver! God bless my liver for seeing me through the last 17 years of writing about St. Patrick’s Day happenings.

Brendan Dunphy has been my co-pilot during this time for as far back as I remember. We cross paths often and those meetings are always punctuated by a warm smile, a pint, and a hug, usually in that order. Each year, he compiles an exhaustive list of Big Green Happenings, which can be found on www.stpatricksdayseason.com.

I’ll have to buy him a pint for this list of musical events so lovingly curated. Here is a partial list, and you would be advised to head over to Dunphy’s website for the full list.
