Musician Skip Clevenger and his band will perform Irish and Celtic music at 7 p.m. Friday at Madison Presbyterian Church, 202 Broadway.
The event, part of a free concert series sponsored by the Madison Performing Arts Foundation, will celebrate St. Patrick's Day, which is Monday.
This is the third time the group will have performed for the series. Clevenger brings in regulars, as well as temporary musicians. Clevenger plays the bagpipes but often switches to various stringed instruments.
"All of them play different instruments," said Drusilla Tripp of the Madison Performing Arts Foundation.
Tripp said patrons often wear traditional Irish attire, such as kilts. The performance is expected to last about 90 minutes.
The Madison Performing Arts Foundation began the performances in the fall and has two more scheduled this season.
On April 11, Lisa Spurlock and the Women's Harp Ensemble will perform at Trinity United Methodist Church, 412 W. Main St., at 7 p.m. Spurlock is a professor of music at the University of Louisville and will bring a number of students from her studio to accompany her.
On May 16, the high school choir group from Dixie Heights High School in Kenton County, Ky., will perform at Trinity United Methodist Church.
