STAFF PHOTO: VERN UYETAKE  - Mike Herren of Mahers Irish Brew Pub will be pouring plenty of beer during the St. Patricks Day festival, which runs March 17-20 at Mahers in downtown Lake Oswego.

Feeling a wee bit Irish? Many events are planned throughout the community in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Put these on the calendar:

March 16

  • Music in the Stacks at West Linn Public Library presents Castlerock at 6:30 p.m. Castlerock’s sound is best described as “renegade Celtic folk rock and Americana” blended with the energy of traditional Irish reels with modern folk, blues, jazz and country influences. The library is located at 1595 Burns St., West Linn.

  • Hear pianist Sally Harmon in concert at 7:30 p.m. in Flavia Salon on the Marylhurst University campus, 17600 Pacific Highway, Marylhurst. Sally returns to her Celtic roots on solo piano, with new compositions and a new CD. This is a benefit for Marylhurst Chamber Choir, to help fund the choir’s trip to compete in the prestigious International Choir Festival in Cork, Ireland later this spring. Admission is $15 at the door. Harmon will also have her new CD for sale at the event.

  • A screening of “The Secret of Kells” at 6:30 p.m. March 17 at the West Linn Library. In a remote medieval outpost of Ireland, young Brendan embarks on a new life of adventure when a celebrated mast illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying a book brimming with secret wisdom and powers. The film is best for those in grades four-eight.

  • Attend Feckin Irish Brewing Company’s inaugural, three-day Irish Craft Ale Festival from noon to close March 17-19.
