CrossRoads Ceili

(Snow date Sunday, March 3, same time & place)

Come and join the celebration, hear the tunes, sing the songs and dances of Ireland past and present.  A wide selection of Irish music will be performed on the fiddle by Michael Colman, a student at RCC.  Members of the Pearl River school of Irish Music, Martin Mulvihill Branch of Comhaltas Ceoiltori Eireann will be the main stars of this exciting evening.  This school has been training top class Irish musicians for over fifteen years and recently produced the winner of the All-World Irish Ceili Bank in the under 12 category, the first time the title was won by an American born band!  Hundreds of groups, from all over Ireland, England, Scotland and America go through many qualifying levels to compete for this final international title.  The school's teachers Rose Flanagan, Margie Mulvihill and Patty Furlong are all former students of the late Martin Mulvihill who was honored with a heritage award by the National Endowment of the Arts in 1984.  In addition to their ceili band winners, the school boasts several fiddle champions and medal winners on whistle, flute, accordion, duet and trio.
