Yesterday, our very own Ryan Slattery graduated from Fordham! All of us here at Ceol na nGael are so incredibly proud of Ryan and all that he accomplished in college!

Hello, my name is Caitlin Nic Gabhann and I'm just trying to get the word out to the Irish concertina community that I've added an Advanced Course to my website of concertina lessons recently 👉 www.IrishConcertinaLessons.com 👈 Through 30+ tunes, I show you all my tricks: How I approach a tune How to get a good rhythm into your playing (bellows bellows bellows!) My approach to rolls, cuts and grace notes How to start adding chords, bass lines and rhythmic patterns ❗PLUS ❗ I want to help you develop your own style. So in this course, we figure out how you can add personality to your playing. Through a good use of the bellows, chords and ornamentation, we learn how you can start developing your own style of concertina playing that is unique to YOU. Not sure if you're a Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced? Try out my free sample lessons here, and see which level suits you 👉 https://www.irishconcertinalessons.com/free_lessons Since I started this website 2 years ago, learners of all ages (under 10 years old to over 80 years old!) and all levels have subscribed in 26 countries around the world. What's stopping you?
Special thanks to Maura Monahan and Maggie Dolan for their tireless efforts to keep Ceol na nGael on the air. We really appreciate the work you do behind the scenes each Sunday. Again, thanks. Donald McCarthy
For more than a quarter of a century, lovers of Celtic music, crafts and culture have gathered each August at a park along the shores of Lake Huron in Goderich, Ontario for the Goderich Celtic Roots Festival. Like a number of other music festivals forced to cancel or postpone this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival’s organizers have arranged for an abbreviated festival online in its place. Featuring pre-recorded musical performances and live hosts, Celtic Roots 27.5 Virtual Festival will stream on Friday August 7, 2020 from 7-11 p.m. EDT and on Saturday, August 8, from 1-5 p.m. EDT.
