Since set dancing won’t be happening for a quite a while, we’re going online, hosting a ‘Virtual Ceili’ Concert Series as a way to stay in touch. We’ve planned a series of live-streamed concerts to take place during what
would be the last hour of our monthly ceili. Look for GWCC online on Facebook and YouTube.
The Series kicks off with tunes from a favorite duo — Lilt (Tina Eck & Keith Carr) on September 27; next up on October 25 will be more local faves, Crystal Bailey & Patrick Cavanagh.
Since it’s beginning, GWCC has sponsored or co-sponsored both established and up-and-coming Irish traditional musicians whenever the situation presents itself. This includes performances by Shaskeen and Moving Cloud, along with the 15 years that we presented the Washington Irish Folk Festival. Lately we’ve more appearances from the talented young musicians that comprise The Bog Band and our Frankie Kennedy Scholarship awardees.
