The Palms Playhouse in Winters will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a little early with a special homecoming concert featuring The Blue Yonders from the U.S. Air Force Band of the Golden West. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 13, at The Palms, 13 Main St. in downtown Winters.

Not your typical military ensemble, The Blue Yonders charm audiences with a clever mix of Irish, bluegrass, pop and country tunes that keep fans guessing and grinning throughout the night. The six-member ensemble features a variety of instruments: Irish flute, penny whistle, accordion, bodhran, djembe, mandolin, guitar, bass guitar, and of course, plenty of vocals.
The Blue Yonders recently returned from a deployment to Southwest Asia where they brought a piece of home to deployed service members and NATO troops. Performing more than 65 shows in nine countries, the group boosted troop morale on military bases and helped to strengthen international relationships in surrounding communities.
While deployed, the group provided a variety of musical support, from formal U.S. Embassy performances to concerts for orphans/students to impromptu mini-shows in military work centers. While at forward operating bases in Afghanistan, they played on makeshift stages constructed from pallets so that service members could catch the show as they headed to and from missions outside the wire.
The Blue Yonders are thrilled to be back at The Palms, where they played their first concert ever in 2013.
Free tickets to the concert are available at Armadillo Music in Davis and Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters. Additional tickets will be released at The Palms on the day of the concert starting at 7:15 p.m.
