Ceili Mor Under the Tent

Ceili Mor Sunday August 11

As tradition has it in Ireland, set dancing was performed in homes and at crossroads.  While local musicians often played, traveling musicians  were always welcomed.  As a nod to tradition, The Irish Cultural Center of New England in Canton, MA is bringing set dancing and music to their marquee tent on Sunday,  August 11 from 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.   Boston Comhaltas musicians will travel from their usual haunt in Watertown, MA to provide the music for the Ceili Mor. All dancers are welcome at this summer event.  Keep the tradition alive.
