It’s Seachtain na Gaeilge Irish language in Song. Irish Roots Cafe

The Irish Roots Cafe
Seachtain na Gaeilge Irish Language week(s)

Sharing the Irish Language
Adding to my published collection of Irish Genealogy
and History works, The Irish Roots Cafe house band
has participated in Irish Language Week for a few years now.
What better way to extend your family connections…
We perform in Irish (gaeilge) and teach the audience
to sing a chorus or two in the Irish language, that would
be the language of my Irish ancestors.

The Midwest Connection
These shows are currently in Kansas and Missouri, but available
elsewhere, just contact me at
We can perform in educational settings as well as at
house parties and pubs.

The Irish Gathering 2014
Note that we are sponsoring the Irish gathering of sean nos
and old style song and dance in April (see link below).
We will introduce you to the old style upon which
much of modern styles have been built. So, if you want to learn
or want to perform, this is the place for you.
Very informal and public events, like sessions and house
parties. (note that the Irish Roots Cafe and the IRC house
band are two separate working groups that I am in.)

All the best,
