Main Song Event Broadcast Live
Local singers of Song in Irish gaeilge, will gather
together on day three of the events, that day at Brownes
Irish Marketplace. Preceded there by Irish dance lessons
and sessions, followed by a tribute that evening
to Irish music revival of the 1980s in the area.
Some songs will be sean nos style, others will
be sean nos modernized, and others will
simply be songs in Irish, best we can.
The singers come from all walks of life, from
professional to folks who just wanted to sing
a song in Irish. It is time they were recognized
for supporting the Irish language and heritage.
There is an open call for singers in Irish.
The few, the proud, the brave, will be with us on
this 25th day of April.
Watch and listen on your computer
We will be broadcasting live from Brownes Irish Marketplace
that day, to people all over the world. All you need
is a computer to watch. It’s at 8 o’clock EDT, 7 oclock K.C. time.
We will be using a laptop to send it to you live.
There is no charge, and you can type in comments on
your computer that we can read while the show is going on.
