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.
Come and enjoy a great night of dancing and mingling with Comhaltas branch members from throughout the Northeast Region on the occasion of our Annual General Meeting (held during the day Saturday) and the Hall of Fame induction ceremony 6:30-8 PM (preceding the ceili). Coffee, tea, and refreshments will be served.
Please note, the time for the Hall of Fame Induction has been changed to 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Print a flyer! – caution using printed flyer: see note about updated starting time of Hall of Fame induction.
Update (Oct. 16, 2017): See related post about our Boston Comhaltas branch hosting the Northeast Region meeting and Hall of Fame induction the same weekend.
