The Company Stores
For the 11th year in a row, The Foundry is the place to be on St. Patrick’s Day. Along with acoustic performances by local groups Green Flag Band and The Gentry, both of whom specialize in traditional Irish and Celtic music, Saturday’s event features a special appearance from The Company Stores, a critically acclaimed West Virginia outfit that builds its eclectic sound by blending various styles, including rock, blues, Appalachian folk, hip hop and more. For this show, the band will pay tribute to the Irish rock canon. In addition, the all-day affair will feature performances by students at the Athens Drake School of Irish Dance, and the Foundry kitchen will be serving up a festive St Patty’s-inspired menu. Plus: all the Guinness your heart desires.
