USA Tour: Irish Christmas in America

The hugely popular holiday show Irish Christmas in America brings a fascinating performance of  music, song, dance and stories of seasonal Irish traditions. Gráinne has been touring the USA with this show every year since 2005 and is looking forward to being back this year.

Produced by Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, the hugely popular Irish Christmas in America show features top Irish music, song and dance in an engaging performance rich in humour and boundless energy.  Following the cancellation of the 2020 tour due to COVID-19, the 2021 tour features special guest singer Niamh Farrell, a Sligo vocalist who has toured with UK singer/songwriting star David Gray.

This family-friendly performance features lively instrumental tunes on fiddle, flute, uilleann pipes, harp and bouzouki, along with thrilling Irish dancing. In addition, evocative photographic images provide a backdrop to some of the rich historical traditions of Ireland. Take a memorable glimpse into the enchanting spirit of Christmas, as the finest traditional artists from Ireland, bring you on a fun-filled start to the holiday season of 2021.

Wednesday Workshops: Fall Series

This Fall I will be offering a new series of workshops, divided by level. Workshops will be offered for intermediate and advanced levels, as well as a new ‘Introduction to Irish Music’ workshop series which includes information on various aspects of the Irish traditional as well as elementary level tunes.

Participants sign up for a course of 4 workshops at the appropriate level, one every 3 weeks from September to November for a fee of €100. Workshops take place on Wednesdays 8.00-9.15pm Irish Standard Time (3.00-4.15pm Eastern)

An audio recording will be sent to participants in advance so you can familiarise yourself with the tune ahead of each workshop. The workshop itself will be taught by ear, live on zoom and will be video recorded with an access link sent afterwards so you can review at your leisure or catch up if you couldn’t make the live workshop.
