Step lively to attend MTSU’s first Irish Music Day Feb. 11

Feeling a need for a bit of music from the auld sod? Then don’t miss the first Irish Music Day on Saturday, Feb. 11, on the MTSU campus!

MTSU’s School of Music is collaborating with the Franklin, Tenn.-based Authentic Ireland Cultural Enrichment organization to conduct the daylong event. It will include workshops for traditional singing, step dancing, fiddle, Irish flute, bodhran and bouzouki as well as classes in the Gaelic language and other associated topics.

Workshops kick off at 10 a.m. after a 9:30 a.m. meet-and-greet gathering for attendees. The day will culminate at 4:30 p.m. with a special public concert in Room 101 of the University’s Saunders Fine Arts Building. (Please note: This is a change from the originally publicized concert time.)

The workshops cost $40 each with a discount for multiple sessions, and the closing concert costs $10 per person. MTSU students with a valid ID will be admitted free.
