Thank you for joining us for the 8th Annual Minnesota Irish Music Weekend, June 12-14th!  The children's beginner program (ages 7-11), Irish trad immersion camp (9-12 year-olds), teen program (all weekend with visiting artists), and the adult workshops & lectures were all an incredible success.  We look forward to seeing you next year!

Presented by the CIM, the Minnesota Irish Music Weekend is a unique festival that pairs world-class traditional Irish musicians and teachers with learners of all ages and abilities for a weekend of workshops, lectures, the Friday night Great Session Experience and a rare and virtuosic Saturday night concert featuring the visiting artists.  

Each of the visiting artists is recognized for their musical mastery, and will offer insights and techniques to help learners tap into the deep roots of traditional Irish music.  

This activity is funded, in part, by the Minnesota State Arts Board through the arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
