The Martin Wynne branch is participating in A Celebration of Irish Dance, Music, and Merriment on Sunday, March 8th at the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University. Bridget English, our branch chair, will give a presentation on the history of traditional Irish music and dance. There will be demonstrations of ceili, set, step, and sean nos dance styles, and a chance to learn a few steps! Ted McGraw of the Tom Finucane branch in Rochester will give a button accordion performance. Top-notch local musicians will also give performances on fiddle and uilleann pipes. Members of the Irish language class led by Margaret McGrath will present Gaelic poetry and song. Click on the flyer for more information.
