The concert is set from 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday, March 17, in Palmer Place Restaurant, 56 S.

Character Fleadh was formed in 2008, and its musicians note they have performed at quite a few Irish bars in Chicago and the surrounding region, lots of Irish weddings, a handful of festivals including Gaelic Park Irish Fest, and twice shared the stage with legendary local Irish accordion virtuoso John Williams (Solas).
