St. Pat’s Parade Day With Celtic Rock Band Mulligan Stew
Live Celtic Rock Music By Mulligan Stew: 1:30pm-4:00pm
Mulligan Stew has been a fixture in the Irish/Celtic Music Scene in Chicago since 1978. They got their start playing in several nostalgic locations such as Durty Dicks, Kilkenny Castle Inn, Glenshesk Public House, O’Sullivans, Callahans, Irish Mill Inn & Irish Eyes. Mark Holihan is the founding member of Mulligan Stew on guitar and vocals. The band started as an offshoot for him and his friend’s Rich Trumbo & Bob Stern while playing folk music together in the mid-seventies.
This weekend marks the 40th consecutive year Mulligan Stew has performed for the masses of parade goers and pub crawlers on this most gloriously green day here at Andy’s Jazz Club. A tradition that goes back to when the parade traveled state street and marchers would stage on Hubbard Street while waiting to meet the masses.
Their song selections come from Traditional Irish Music, Irish Drinking Songs, Folk, Rock, Bluegrass & Country Music. Mark is the last remaining original member of the band. The original instrumentation of the group was Vocals, Guitars & Bass. Since then, they have added a fiddle/mandolin player and more recently, percussion.
