Irish Sessions, new day!

We had a wonderful time at the Irish session last Sunday. We have lots of space in the Assembly Room at the Center and, in addition to fiddles, guitars, flutes, whistles, uilleann pipes, washtub bass, and bodhrán, we were very lucky to be joined by the Ghrá na Gaeilge Irish dancers for some of the tunes. We also loved having so much space and access to a beautiful grand piano for some Cape Breton-esque accompaniment by Keith.

Please note that the sessions are moving to the last Sunday of each month from 2 to 4 pm beginning on February 28.

The Center (formerly known as the Senior Center) is located at 24 South Linn Street in Iowa City. Contact Tara with any questions. Hope to see you all there!

Something for the little ones...

I'm very excited to be joining the Kindermusik staff at West Music this semester for two toddler classes on Friday mornings. It's very likely that my fiddle and mandolin will be making an appearance in class this semester!

On Saturday, February 6 from 10 to 11 am, there will be a Kindermusik open house at West Music in Coralville. The open house is an opportunity to meet the teachers, explore the music room, have some snacks together, and sign up for the semester. Spread the word to all the musical toddlers in your life.

Irish Seisiún and Beggarmen at Trinity

Please join us this Sunday, February 7, from 2 to 4 pm in the Assembly Room of the Center in Iowa City (24 South Linn Street) for an Irish session. All are welcome to play, dance, or just listen.

The Beggarmen are also performing a concert at 4:30 that afternoon at Trinity Episcopal Church in Iowa City (320 East College Street) to celebrate the re-dedication of the chapel now that the LEED certified renovations are complete.

For more information about both events, contact Tara Dutcher.
