This year we need you!!! Come play at a live session at the Annual Festival Ceili during Burlington’s Irish Heritage Festival. (Ceili means an informal social gathering with music, dancing and singing). The Annual Festival Ceili is fun for the whole family with Irish stepdancing and some of Vermont’s finest Celtic musicians play in a live session. So break out your instrument and come play with us.
The Ceili takes place each year at Contois Auditorium in Burlington from 1-3pm. All Irish musicians are welcome to play and it’s open to the public.
For musicians who have not yet played in this session here are some common tunes that are usually played. This by no means is a set list but it will at least give you a place to start.
Hope to see you on Sunday.
