The Center for Irish Music and emcee Máirtín de Cógáin invite you to dress up in your finest, bring your friends, and join us for Éigse CIM, A Gaela Event, an evening in support of traditional 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 for an evening to raise funds for The Center for Irish Music, Minnesota\’s only traditional Irish music school, dedicated to handing down the tradition.
The semi-formal evening event, emceed by award-winning Irish-born actor and storyteller, Máirtín de Cógáin, includes a traditional Irish dinner, a celtic art-themed silent auction, raffle, and concert by the stellar traditional Irish music of the CIM Instructors who boast recording, award winning, and world touring artists among their number.
Students from The Center for Irish Music\’s Advanced Youth Ensemble will also perform during the evening and include local residents Cathal Mee, Ava Sackaroff, Fiona and Ian McKenna.
