A Celebration in Support of Traditional Irish Music

Join the Center for Irish Music and emcee Máirtín de Cógáin for an unforgettable celebration in support of the Center for Irish Music! 

Éigse [eg-shuh] is an Irish word used for festivals celebrating traditional Irish arts and culture. It is in this spirit that we gather to raise funds for The Center for Irish Music, Minnesota's only traditional Irish music school, dedicated to handing down the tradition.

For our in-person guests, the evening includes a cocktail reception featuring delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts from Fig&Bleu, a Celtic-art-themed silent auction, and a stellar traditional Irish music concert by Center for Irish Music instructors, who boast recording, award winning, and world touring artists among their number, with special performances by CIM students. 

Virtual guests will have access to the Éigse CIM silent auction, as well as a high-quality livestream of the concert.
