School CD and Trip to Ireland
The School of Irish Music has an amazing learning opportunity for its students. The school organizes a trip to Ireland for its students occurring every other year (2014, 2016, 2018). To help fund the expenses with this, we also organize a CD fundraiser where kids from the school get to record music on a CD that we sell.
- Our School organizes trips to Ireland in alternating years (2014, 2016, 2018)
- We visit our sister school in Letterkenny, Donegal : Ceol na Coille for music instruction.
- We visit local destinations to learn more about the culture and history of Ireland
- Group band recordings open to all students
- Solo opportunities for more advanced players
- Guest musicians include national and international stars of Irish music
- Our last CD, Winter Air, reached #8 on the Amazon Irish Folk Charts, and was nominated by TradConnect for Irish Trad Album of the Year
