What’s could be nicer on St. Patrick’s Day than an afternoon of great Irish music with The Irish Benders? An afternoon and evening of Irish music with The Irish Benders. Technically it’s The Backwoods Benders, but  mid-March each year, band members Mike Barker (autoharp, banjo, and vocals), Hilary Schacht (violin, fiddle, and vocals), Denise Dixson (guitar, accordion, and vocals), Reiney Brown (upright bass, electric bass, and vocals), and Arne Bey (percussion) change the band’s name and transform into Santa Fe’s answer to The Irish Rovers. Their repertoire stretches from melancholy to raucous, and their endurance  is worth a toast or two. The Irish Benders do a set at Cowgirl BBQ  (319 S. Guadalupe St., 982-2565) from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday,  March 17, and return at 8 p.m. to keep the dance floor hopping  into the cabbage- and ale-soaked night.
