Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
Here's the Garlic Mustard Pickers Celtic band's lineup for March: Two fundraiser gigs, and a restaurant gig

The band is providing dining room music for:
Mulligan's Irish Pub
8933 S 27th St, Franklin (just south of Drexel on the west side of 27th Street)
2pm to 5 pm
This is a traditional acoustic performance, so there is no sound system to get in the way. Should be a lot of fun.
The food is good, too.
The band asks that you please share this schedule with friends and neighbors who like Irish music. You can also send the band and email at firstname.lastname@example.org and asked to be added to its email distribution list.
The band hopes to see you at one (or more?) of these gigs, wish you a Happy St. Pat's Day and thank you for supporting them!
