Traditional Irish Music
Come April 25, this year, there will be a gathering of sean nós singers, dancers, musicians, listeners, enthusiasts and fans. It is a peoples movement, intended to introduce many folks to the 'old style'. In fact, most people in the Heart of America do not know what 'sean nós' is. We are going to change that, on a zero budget, with real life experience, with a house session; a pub session or two; and a Deli session, for starters !
So mark your calendar, and plan to visit Kansas City, MO (yes, good old KC) in April. While you're there, drop in and share what you know, or learn a bit. You could even volunteer to guide a session in dance or song or music - and feel free to promote yourself or your area ! These will be public venues, not formal workshops, as it now stands. No big fee to attend, it's sort of a do it yourself set up, with a few folks around to guide you on your way. We could use a sponsor for some nifty T-shirts for the 2014 sean nós gathering - bound to be a coveted collectors item !
Come on along, especially from out of town, let us know you're coming, we can add local sessions !
We've got a grand couple of sean nós dance instructors flying in already, I can help with sean nós song, and many more lining up right now...
Be it 100 or 1000 participants, it will be a mighty meeting in KC this April.... no charge to attend most sessions, though we may have a $2 cover for one of them !

p.s. Please do respond if this sounds like a fun, if unconventional event !
P.S.S. This would be a good time for Tradconnect folks to meet up too, at a humble table of honor perhaps !
