Dublin-based Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (CCÉ) is the largest, single, non-profit group involved in the preservation and promotion of Irish traditional music and culture. Started in 1951, CCÉ now has branches all over the world. The O’Neill Malcom Branch primarily serves the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
Some of the world's best performance artists and teachers are joining us again this year for classes in fiddle, flute, Uilleann Pipes, penny whistle, bodhran, concertina, button accordion, guitar/bouzouki, banjo, Celtic harp, singing & songwriting, Sean-nos dance and set dance.
We've added Irish piano, cello and a variety of compelling workshops during the lunchtime elective period, some of which also extend to Saturday.
To make MAD Week more affordable to the entire family, first two full-time registrations per family pay full rate; other family members receive full time registration at half day rate!
The CCÉ organization is interested in posting all notices of upcoming Irish related activities in the Washington and Baltimore metropolitan areas. Please submit your posting in a paragraph form that lends itself to ready posting on the site without editing by the webmaster.
