There are plenty of ways you can display the green this Saint Patrick's Day...

(March 17) BATT AND MAURA BURNS Husband and wife team Batt and Maura Burns. The duo has crossed the pond for a night of witty jokes, storytelling and jolly jams in the Irish tradition at 6 p.m. at the Kennedy Center. The show combines the ancient art of the storyteller with the poetry and prose of some of Ireland's most illustrious authors.

(March 17) CELTIC WOMAN If the typical rowdy rancor of March 17th isn't your speed, you can take in a few traditional Songs from the Heart, courtesy of some of Ireland's finest femmes at the Patriot Center in Fairfax tonight at 8 p.m. The all-female Irish ensemble Celtic Woman presents a fluid performance by vocalists and fiddlers.

(March 20) ZAN AND FRIENDS And if you don't want to shed your greens just yet, prolong St. Paddy's through Saturday night when Zan & Friends take the stage at the Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park, Maryland at 8 p.m. Baltimore's award-winning Irish musicians folk-about on the bouzouki, accordion and flute.
