Adult Song & Cultural Classes



Irish Poetry in Translation
Poetry has always been central to Irish culture, from the earliest surviving examples—dating from as early as the 6th century—to today. The focus of this series of classes will be Irish language poetry from the 16th century up to now. The group will read and discuss a variety of wonderful examples of our rich tradition in translation, and Dáithí looks forward to students bringing their own particular interests and loves to the conversation.

Irish Pub Songs

Pub songs are raucous, tuneful, and above all, fun! But like the most intricate reel, you need skill and a concentrated approach to play and sing them well. Todd will teach the vocal techniques and rhythmic strategies needed to help you stand and deliver these wonderful ballads and drinking songs. All instruments encouraged, though not required.
