Saint Patrick's Day Celebration. Two days! 
Saturday, March 16th. Sunday, March 17th. 
Two days of traditional Irish music and dance. 
Two days of Irish food. Two days of Irish drink. 
All make for two days of Irish craic (fun)!
Be sure to buy our special two day ticket if you plan to attend both days. 

Planning your St. Patrick's Day? Plan on the Duck! 

Our famous fish and chips, shepherd's pie, beef Guinness, corned beef and cabbage, and of course, homemade bread pudding with Jameson's Irish Whiskey Sauce will be served up festival style under the big top.

Award winning piper EJ Jones has assembled world class players to bring you an authentic Irish experience.  Two stages with music from 1m until 7 pm.

Did you hear? The Irish Faerie's are coming! Bring your wee ones to enjoy a tea party, treats, and crafts with Rowan, Titania and Crystal. The faerie tea party will be magical! Seating is limited, so be sure to purchase your Faerie Tea Party ticket in advance. The tea party ticket price includes the children's general admission for our St. Patrick's Day Celebration, as well as entrance to Faerie Land.

PIPER JONES BAND   appx 2:45pm, 6:15pm
So, a bagpiper, a bouzouki player, and a drummer walk into an Irish pub… and they proceed to rock the joint! 
The Piper Jones Band bringing their foot stomping brand of Celtic music to the Duck for Houston's premiere Irish party.

What is one of the most asked questions about our McGonigel's Mucky Duck St. Patrick's Day Celebration....when are the dancers going to be here?  Soon! As always, a highlight of the day. 

Clann Kelly, an Irish dancing school established in 2016, is registered with An Coimisium le Rinci Gaelacha, The Irish Dancing Commission, in Dublin, Ireland. Under the tutelage of Anna Kelly the Kelly School dancers will put you in the spirit of the day.

KRISTIN COYLE & THE BLACK SWANS  appx 2:30pm, 5:30pm
From out of the doldrums comes the wind. A new era of Irish rock is approaching. Where the bedrock of blues and the verdant tides of traditional Irish music meet comes the sound of Kristin Coyle and the Black Swans.  Feisty fiddling is accompanied by a weaving electric guitar and a healthy dose of drum swagger.

CLANDESTINE   appx 1:45, 4:45pm, 4:45
Clandestine is hard-driving, toe-tapping Texas Celtic sound.  Clandestine is known for their brand of blasting tune sets and fresh songs. Piper EJ Jones and fiddler Gregory McQueen lead the tunes with the full force of their individual musical energies. Al Cofrin brings cittern and occasionally another set of bagpipes to the mix.  

Percussionist and singer Emily Dugas captivates with her original song collaborations with Al, as well as her singular interpretations of songs in the Celtic genre. EJ and Al also join Emily on vocals, with many songs now set in three-part harmony.

ANDREW FINN MAGILL  appx 12:45pm, 3:30

The Fiddler"

Andrew Finn Magill has been featured multiple times on NPR and his 2016 two-disc project Roots and Branches debuted at #46 on the Folk DJ charts.

"I’m gonna keep listening for Finn Magill." Tim O’Brien

"Andrew Finn Magill is a leading fiddler in a new generation of musicians." Martin Hayes

"Serene and incredibly soulful, North Carolina fiddler Andrew Finn Magill encounters the tradition in a manner reminiscent of Keith Jarrett on The Melody at Night With You." Siobhan Long, The Irish Times

appx 5:45pm
With a roster of championship performers, you can expect plenty of lively stepping to fine Irish tunes when they take the stage.

appx 12pm, 4:30pm
Every pub has its regulars, but some of them are a little more regular than others. Frances Cunningham started off playing twenty years ago as a regular Irish Session player every Wednesday night at the Duck.  
We were all sad to see her move to Nashville, but the road was calling. Not long after moving to Nashville, Frances became a "regular" once again. This time at the Grand Ole Opry. 

However, there's nothing "regular" about her playing! You will recognize her extraordinary talent the moment she picks up her Irish bouzouki. Frances was the winner of the Midwest Fleadh for banjo.

PAT BYRNE  appx 12pm, 3:45

Pat Byrne, an Irish singer songwriter crowned the winner of the "The Voice-Ireland" comes to us from County Carlow, Ireland.  Pat's voice strikes an emotional chord with his audience; ranging from seductive whisper one moment, to full-bodied rock 'n' roll growl the next. 

His latest work reflects both his Irish roots and the rich influence of the musicians he’s recently worked with in Texas. 

“A great voice, a true talent, and a righteous guy, Pat is one of the very best I’ve worked with in a long time.” — Rich Brotherton - guitarist and producer, Ace Recording & Robert Earl Keen 

MARTIN BURNISTON'S IRISH SINGALONG   appx 1:30pm, 4:30, 5:30pm
Martin Burniston, a Minister of Entertainment for the Kerr County Celtic Association, ensures that he'll bring plenty of craic to the party. Martin will have you singing along to Molly Malone in no time.
Master oCeremonies - 
Sword swallowing, unicycle riding, comedian with mad skills, Mr. Jim MacKenzie, will keep you entertained during set changes.
