Kith & Kin’s Irish Music Celebration at the Blue Note

Kith & Kin’s Irish Music Celebration will be at the Blue Note on Thursday, March 14, at 7:30 p.m. The exact origins of Kith & Kin, Napa Valley’s traditional Irish band for more than 30 years, are lost in the mist of time and the foam of Guinness. Some say the Irish mythical hero, Cuhullin, appeared to the group’s founder and guiding spirit, the late, great John Kelley of St. Helena, with the names and phone numbers of prospective members: Ann Gilleran, Kathi Brotemarkle, Linda Howard, Ron Brunswick and Michael Waterson. Others who’ve had less to drink say that’s a lot of blarney. Come see them perform jigs and reels, hornpipes and ballads in a warm up for St. Patrick’s Day. Blue Note, 1030 Main St., Napa,
