CHICAGO — The Irish American Heritage Center, 4626 N. Knox Ave., is unleashing a double-hit of authentic Celtic music this week to remind us that St. Patrick's Day is a mere six months away, the center announced.

The festivities start with a free performance at 7 p.m. Thursday by Lúnasa, described by event organizers as "one of Ireland’s most celebrated, long-lived traditional music ensembles," as part of the Chicago World Music Festival.

The band plays folk music from Ireland, Scotland and Spain with classical guitar and bass for "dazzling harmonies zipping by in every bar," they continued.

The free show will be followed on Friday by the center's Halfway to St. Patrick's Day Party, which will feature shows by The Tossers, Shannon Rovers Irish Pipe Band and The Chancey Brothers.

The party runs from 6 p.m.-1 a.m. Friday, and tickets are available on the center's website.
