Monthly CEILI DANCE - Sponsored by the Philadelphia Ceili Group takes place at the Irish Center
Every 4th Friday of the Month at 8:00 p.m. there is a Ceili at the Commodore Barry Club. A Ceili (kay-lee) is a traditional Irish gathering for fun, fellowship, and laughs (or craic as the Irish might say). Traditional Ceili dances were enjoyed at house parties and crossroads gatherings in the rural country sides. There are several dances which are easy for beginners to learn, such as, Haymaker’s jig, Siege of Ennis, Fairy Reel, etc. Many of these traditional dances have a follow the leader pattern that new dancers can easily pickup on their 1st attempt. Our dance caller will teach the basic 3’s, 7s, jig step, and Ceili swing at the start of the event. Come early (7:30 ish) and learn the basic steps while meeting new friends! You’ll never learn if you don’t try. Cost is $12.00 when there is live music, $10 When its recorded music unless otherwise noted.
Sponsored by the Philadelphia Ceili Group takes place at the Irish Center
Every 1st Friday of the Month from 8:00 - 9:00 there is a slow session. This is a traditional Irish session in all ways except one: the tempo. You will play common session tunes at a slower than normal pace, so that beginning and intermediate players can more easily learn the tunes and join in the session. Also great for experienced players who are picking up another instrument! A regular session sponsored by the Irish Center will run after that from 9:00 - on.
January 7, 2015 will be the next singing session. The featured guests will be Don and Susan Simons performing songs of Robert Burns with pipe accompaniment in preparation for Burns Night which is always January 25. Feel free to share any Celtic songs with us but some of us plan to sing something by Robert Burns or related to his songs and poems.
The Irish Center 7:30 - 9:30 PM
