Join us at the Library on Saturday, March 19 at 2pm for a toe-tapping performance by Ceol Cairde (“Music of Friends”), a group of Milwaukee area musicians who specialize in traditional Irish and other Celtic music.
Ceol Cairde has been performing since the spring of 1989 and has its roots in the 1988 Irish Fest Summer School, a week of classes held the week before Irish Fest. Classes are taught in Irish music, dance, language, and theater, as well as other Irish culture activities for all ages. Deciding one week of Irish music was not enough, they began playing in each other’s living rooms, learning more and more tunes. With the windows open one summer day, a passer-by heard the delightful sounds of jigs and reels and asked the group to perform at their wedding. Milwaukee Irish Fest, Holiday Folk Fair, the Canadian Carousel of Nations, and many other special events followed that initial wedding performance. Ceol Cairde members share the energy and spirit of the traditional Irish music they enjoy so much. The irresistible blending of their instruments provides the unique sound that is the “Music of Friends.”(www.ceolcairde.com)
