NEW GLASGOW, N.S. —

The Riverfront Jubilee will host a Saint Patrick’s Day Party fundraiser at Glasgow Square Theatre on Saturday, March 16.

The party’s entertainment will include local musicians Andre Pettipas and the Giants with Kitchen Criminals. Alex Theriault from Z97.9 Classic Rock, will host the evening. The event runs 6 to 10 p.m.

“We’re excited to kick off St. Paddy’s Day and celebrate with local talent like Andre Pettipas and the Giants,” says Janine Linthorne, Riverfront Jubilee volunteer board of directors chairperson. “This event will enable us to raise funds to help us book stellar acts for the 2019 Jubilee and beyond.”

Brothers Andre and Travis Pettipas join long-time friends, Marcus Cosh and John MacDonald to complete the harmony-driven quartet from Antigonish County. The winners of Q104’s 2017 Homegrown Contest and 2019 Jim Beam National Talent Search Regional Champions promise a show full of antics.

The Kitchen Criminals is a four-piece “string slingin’ band.” Members include mandolin and bass player, Bruce Pettipas; fiddle player Hayley MacLeod; bodhran drum, tin whistle and back up vocalist, Sandra DeCoste; and lead guitarist and lead vocalist, Ashley George.

“Both bands are super entertaining and they kind of cater to a wide crowd, so it’s something for everyone,” said Jillian George, director of marketing for the Riverfront Jubillee.

Not only will the event be rocking the Glasgow Square Theatre, but there will also be a silent auction for those who attend as well as a 50/50 draw.

Tickets are $20 and will be available at the door only. This is a 19+ event and is subject to capacity limits. More information can be found at facebook.com/jubileeNG.
