A year on from Comhaltas’ newest branch on Prince Edward Island, CCÉ Red Island are determined to not let a bumpy year get in the way of a weekend filled with music, craic & good company!
Siamsa (pronounced sheem-sa) means ‘jolly festivities & entertainment’ in the Irish Gaelic language, and appropriately sets the mood for the weekend!
Siamsa Traditional Irish Music Weekend is getting underway on the 11th& 12thJune, so mark those calendars!
A range of talent to include artists Orla McCague, Karine Gallant, Ian Macinnes, Andrée Mackula Thériault, Erin Dempsey, Cian Ó Móráin & Mary MacGillivray ensure this will be a memorable weekend not to be missed!
To start the weekend’s events, join all our tutors for a wonderful Friday evening of music & song at the Traditional Irish Music Concert, from 8pm.
Then on Saturday, join County Monaghan native Órla McCague online for a tune & technique workshop from 10am – 12pm (suitable for all instruments & abilities) followed by fiddle & accompaniment with Karine Gallant & Ian Macinnes from 2 – 4pm.
And finally, enjoy the sweet music of hosts Andrée & Erin for a traditional Irish music session on Saturday evening from 8pm. Participants & listeners welcome.
All events at the Old Triangle (902-892-5200)
