Local country combo Les Chercheurs d’Or stuck it rich in the crowded bar of District Saint-Joseph on March 8, as part of the Apéros FEQ (Festival d’Été de Québec) concert series. With their unique sound, this band of five talented musicians was well worth listening to and even more impressive performing live.

On St. Patrick’s Day, everyone is Irish, or at least Irish at heart. Green is everywhere; we drink green beer and eat corned beef and (green) cabbage, and wearing something green seems essential.

How did this tradition start? Why do we wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? When did the colour green replace St. Patrick’s original colour, which was sky blue?
