ROXBURY, NJ - Never mind the clocks in Irish pubs counting down the hours to St. Patrick's Day. Start celebrating tonight at the Roxbury Peforming Arts Center where Celtic music maestro Charlie Zahm is taking the stage.

Zahm, notes the Roxbury Arts Alliance, "is one of the most popular soloists at Celtic music festivals, maritime and American traditional music events anywhere east of the Mississippi."

The Alliance,which is bringing the Pennsylvania musician to the Investor's Bank Theater at Horseshoe Lake Park, is calling the concert a "St. Patricks Day Celebration." The 7:30 p.m. concert will also feature Tad Marks on the fiddle.

"With a baritone voice some have described as 'coming along once in a generation,' Charlie has become one of the most successful performers on the Celtic festival circuit, weaving magical moments of Scottish and Irish history for the listener and viewer, with passion for the performance and a chosen repertoire pleasing to all members of the family," says Zahm's website. 

It points out that Zahm is also a masterful guitarist who sprinkles his show with "dashes of humor" that include stories about the songs he loves and loves to perform.
